Let's make this delicious vegan pasta salad with avocado sauce

Meanwhile, chop all of your veggies.
For this recipe you will need:
Add those veggies into a bowl along with cooked chickpeas and vegan greek style cheese.
I love this vegan cheese by violife! In our country, it is called greek style cheese, but in the US I found it under the name Just like Greek feta. Anyways, this cheese created such a wonderful taste in this salad. It is so creamy and so delightful.
When the pasta is done, drain it and put it into a bowl along with veggies, chickpeas, and vegan cheese. Combine and set aside.
Lastly, let's make avocado sauce.

The sauce will be rich in flavors and maybe too strong but don't worry, we are going to combine it with a salad so it will be just ok!
