Chipotle Chicken Salpicon Salad

I got this recipe from a Costco Cookbook.
Salpicon means 'hodgepodge' in Spanish; a pretty good description for this salad.
Which I devoured...
Chipotle Chicken Salpicon Salad
1 lb. chicken breast, cooked and cubed
1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
4 oz. diced cheese (I used cheddar)
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1 small tomato, diced
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
1 ripe avocado, cubed
cilantro leaves

3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice
1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 minced canned chipotle chile and 1/2 Tbsp. adobo sauce from the can
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Whisk together dressing ingredients.
Cube salad ingredients so they are about the same size as the chickpeas.
Snip cilantro leaves into salad and pour however much of the dressing you want on top.
Toss to combine and serve.
Garnish with extra cilantro.
