Besides, this salad provides good quality proteins because of plant proteins from legumes and cereals are combined.

- Once corn and chickpeas already cooked, prepare all the vegetables for the salad. To do this, proceed similarly as we would do in guacamole:

- Choose a ripe avocado. In general, an avocado is ripe when, pressing gently with your fingers, the skin sags or it is soft. Remove the bone. Then, with a knife cut the pulp into cubes and empty it with a spoon.

- Add the onion, tomato, cilantro and lemon squeezed, with a pinch of salt. With a fork, mix all the ingredients for all the flavors to blend and form a homogeneous mass.

- Mix the vegetables with corn and chickpeas.

- Save half an hour or an hour in the fridge for the flavors to blend, and serve as a main dish or accompaniment.
