Ooh, warm weather coming, and that means lighter, cooler meals. This Albacore Chickpea Spinach Salad fits the bill. And it’s so easy to put together. I did get thumbs up from my guys, but I’m the real fan here. Yum!



2-7 oz cans Albacore tuna packed in water, drained

1-14 oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

3 green onions, sliced thin

3 Roma tomatoes, diced small

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced small

1 cucumber, peeled and diced small

2 tbsp parsley, chopped

3 tbsp olive oil

juice from 1/2 lemon

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

4 cups fresh baby spinach

1) Gently mix all ingredients, except spinach, in a large bowl

2) Divide spinach between 4 plates; top with tuna-chickpea mixture; and enjoy!

Servings: 4

    Yum!! This does read and look like a refreshingly great spring or summer salad. And if it’s not warm enough there in Tennessee – then you’re welcome to come on down here to Florida – it’s certainly warm here – lol! I’m still tingling from reading “The Longing” – – what a fabulous story! And congrats again on it being the #1 historical christian romance read on Amazon!! Wow!!

    • It was so tasty, Pam. I do like my chickpeas 🙂 Actually, today was very warm–mid 80’s. By the time the sun set, our front door was almost too hot too touch. Don’t want it any warmer than this, though it certainly will be, and when the humidity kicks in big time… 😦 I’m glad you enjoyed The Longing so much, Pam. The scripture you provided was such an inspiration. Thank you, again! Have a wonderful evening. Put those feet up!
