Today is Father’s Day. It’s a rather uneventful day now that my dad has passed away, but I still like to celebrate my husband’s fatherhood and remember the great memories I have of my father. We were lucky to enjoy dinner with my husband’s oldest son and wife last night at a quaint Italian restaurant near us. It was a great time with wonderful conversation and food. I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day.
In lieu of the rich food we had the previous night, I decided to make a tasty salad for dinner. I made the Avocado and Chickpea salad from the Forks Over Knives App. It’s super easy to make and this time I embellished it with tomatoes…what a difference that made. This is a very versatile dish that could be placed on a bed of greens, or in an oil free tortilla. I chose the salad option, and served some homemade lime and sea salt tortilla chips on the side.
