  • If you’re not using canned chickpeas, you must first soak the dry chickpeas. This is very important as it will reduce their cooking time, and will make them more digestible. Soak them overnight or ideally around 24 hours.
  • Cook your soaked chickpeas for around 1 to 2 hours or until they’re soft. If you have a pressure cooker, it should take 1 hour tops. Strain them to remove the foamy bits, and to cool them down.
  • Be generous when adding the avocado dressing. It will surely upgrade the flavor of your salad.
