  1. Place the chickpeas on a sheet tray and toss with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place under the broiler. Shake the pan every 20 to 30 seconds and roast until the chickpeas have darkened in color and have a rattling sound, 2 minutes or so. 
  2. Whisk together the salad dressing you add a citrus such lemon or orange if you dont want to use the sherry vinegar. 
  3. Place the kale in a bowl and drizzle with the dressing. Let rest.
  4. Prepare the avocado by removing the pit, cutting into small cubes, and removing from the skin with the help of a spoon. Add to the bowl with the kale and toss. Toss in the chickpeas right before serving.
