Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepperto taste
In a medium bowl, toss avocado, cilantro, red onion, feta cheese, with lime juice; set aside.
In a small bowl, combine chickpeas, and onion. Microwave on high for 30-seconds.
Add the chickpeas and onion into the bowl with the avocado mixture and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir well.
Serve with extra cilantro, if desired.
Onions can have a pungent, lingering aftertaste; to calm the onion flavors, you can slice them and soak them in cold ice water for 10-minutes before adding them to the salad. I spoke about this in more detail HERE.
Microwaving the chickpeas and onion is not necessary, but a personal preference. It's not about the heat, at all. Only 30 seconds in the microwave can take some of the rawness out of the chickpeas and softens the flavor of the onions a bit more.
