Polenta, BBQ Beans, Asparagus and Avocado Salad 

Serves 1

Arugula

4.5 oz of baked polenta*

Asparagus (as many stalks as you’d like. I used frozen asparagus, and de-thawed it first)

1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes

1/2 an avocado

1/2 cup of chickpeas

2 tbsp of BBQ sauce

2 tbsp of hummus

Fresh cilantro

*(4.5 oz is about a fourth of an 18 oz package, I used the Trader Joe’s brand. And I also baked the polenta ahead of time according to package directions).

To make this salad, start by coating the chickpeas in the BBQ sauce in a small bowl. Once the BBQ beans are ready, simply compile all ingredients of the salad onto a big plate or into a bowl. Simple and scrumptious! Enjoy!

Salads are wonderful,

Sydney
