California Chop Chop Salad

This is definitely one of my absolute FAVORITES!! I haven't made it in a long time and had kind of forgotten about it. It's back out now.............yuummmyyy!

California Chop Chop Salad:

3/4 c. canned garbanzo beans
1/2 c. small pitted olives
1 medium avocado, chopped (I usually add more because this is my favorite part of the salad)
1 medium tomato, chopped
1- 6 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped- RESERVE THE MARINADE JUICE
3 oz cheddar cheese or mozarella cheese, cubed (I don't add this)

Mix the reserved artichoke marinade with the same amount of balsamic vinegar

Place all ingredients in a bowl and toss with balsamic vinegar mixture.

You can serve on top of lettuce too:)
