Notes

The greatest thing about this salad is it feels like a meal.  The ingredients should really be adjusted to your taste buds.

Add walnuts or sesame seeds.  Use olive oil instead of avocado oil.  Add some diced avocado.  The ingredients that "make" this salad for me are the combination of chickpeas, arugula, feta cheese and the dried cranberries.  Everything else I switch up according to what's in my fridge.
