Fast, Healthy and Easy Chickpea Salad

Is a salad even a salad if it isn’t green? YES! This Mediterranean chickpea salad is absolutely delicious and it’s one of my go-to salad recipes for lunches, potlucks, and dinner parties. With only a few ingredients, this no-cook meal is super easy to put together. Not to mention the fact that chickpeas are packed full of protein, affordable, and super versatile – just like another of my favourite chickpea recipes: buffalo hot sauce roasted chickpeas !

How To Make Chickpea Salad

This tangy salad is simple to make and takes no time at all.

  1. This is SO easy to put together! Just combine the chickpeas, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, green pepper, and Feta cheese in a medium bowl.
  2. Top it off with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of Greek seasoning to taste.
  3. Once you’re done, either serve right away or store in the refrigerator until needed. You don’t want to keep it there for more than a few hours though.

Tips And Tricks For Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

  • You can use whatever chickpeas you have in the pantry for this recipe, both canned and dried will work (cook the dried chickpeas beforehand obviously!).
  • If you’d like some leafy goodness you can always add in some fresh greens and a bit of extra dressing.
  • You can absolutely serve this dish on its own – it’s filling enough for a decent light meal.
  • Add some avocado to give your chickpea salad an interesting twist. I like to sometimes add a few chunks of avocado if I have it in the fridge for a bit of color and extra yum!
  • If you have some pita bread to hand, this recipe is delicious served in a pita!
  • Don’t be afraid to swap in different vegetable options depending on your own tastes. Zucchini works really well too!

Hope you guys love this! I served this with grilled steak when I had a friend visiting from Calgary for the Backstreet Boys concert ( they are STILL SO CUTE!) and this was met with rave reviews! Healthy and so easy to make that we didn’t even bother ordering take-out, we just whipped this up instead!
