  • 1/2 small red onion, diced

  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced or cubed

  • 3/4 cup Gefen Organic Chickpeas

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced in circles

  • red, orange, and yellow peppers, thinly sliced

Prepare Dressing

Place all dressing ingredients into a small bowl or cruet and whisk or shake vigorously. Set aside.

Prepare Carmelized Almonds

1.

To prepare the caramelized almonds, place slivered almonds and sugar in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-low heat. Watch carefully as the sugar begins to melt and the almonds slowly begin to toast.

Stir to ensure that all almonds are coated evenly. Prepare a small piece of aluminum foil.
