melissa’s chickpea avocado salad

April 8, 2009

I finally cooked something today for dinner.  

Mustard roasted fish, leftover baby potatoes, sauteed in a frying pan with red onions, and a slightly adapted new salad, from my friend Melissa –  Chickpea Avocado Salad.  She’s one of those people who doesn’t realize what a great cook she is.  But you look forward to dinner at her place, because it is always flavourful, perfectly spiced and yummy.  Too bad for me she lives in Winnipeg.
