  • Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA
  • To make this salad ahead of time, the trick is to keep the vinaigrette separate from the salad, so the spinach doesn't get soggy. To do, mix together the chick peas, spinach and onions in one container and the oil, vinegar and adobo in another. Then, when you're ready to eat, simply toss and serve.

Good, simple, budget friendly, healthy recipe. I usually swap out Balsamic vinegar for fresh lemon juice, a pinch of cayenne and/or cumin and definitely add garlic to add an extra layer of flavors. I don't add Adobo to this cold salad.

This is a great recipe. I changed some things. I used 8oz fresh baby spinach - chopped, 1/2 large red onion sliced thin, 2 cans of chick peas, 5 strips of bacon and drippings. I heated the chick peas in the bacon grease for a few minutes right before serving and scooped them out and ontop of the spinach/onions, Then I mixed 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar, 2 Tbsp EVOO, and a tsp of honey mustard. Then added it to the salad and mixed. Delish!
