Smashed Chickpea Salad


  1. Start by segmenting the two grapefruits.
  2. Squeeze the remaining inside flesh to yield 2 tablespoons of juice. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, slightly mash the chickpeas with a fork or the bottom of a glass jar. You still want pieces of chickpea, so don’t fully mash into a puree.
  4. Add the yogurt/mayo, shallots, dijon mustard, grapefruit juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to the bowl.
  5. Gently mix the ingredients into the chickpea salad mixture together until just combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  6. To serve, place the smashed chickpea salad in lettuce wraps.
  7. Top with radishes, grapefruit segments, and sliced avocado. Garnish with fresh chives.
