Meatless Monday: Avocado Chickpea Salad Sandwiches 

This smashed chickpea & avocado salad is great for sandwiches and it is also great as a dip for veggies, crackers, and pita chips. It is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free-as long as you use gluten free-bread or serve as a dip with veggies or gluten-free crackers.
