Greek Chickpea Salad

Greek Chickpea Salad

There is something about fresh salads in the summer, and lately I have been a bit obsessed with chickpea salads.  While I usually include a medley of veggies, I recently went to make a salad but was short on tomatoes, which was the inspiration for this version.


1 English cucumber

1 can garbanzo beans

Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced (approx. 4 oz, but you can add as many as you like!)

Olive oil, salt

Feta cheese 

Optional: rice wine vinegar, other veggies like fresh baby spinach, minced shallots


Chop the  cucumber, and mix with the drained/rinsed garbanzos and kalamatas

Drizzle with olive oil, add salt to taste.

Top with feta (or mix in as desired).

    Mmm, this looks delicious. I’d just have to leave out the olives though since I’m not really a fan. But everything else looks great!

    Mmmm! This sounds so good. Chickpeas are so under-rated, aren’t they? I love them and would eat them every day if I could.

    Chickpeas are my favorite food! This looks like a perfect way to elevate the chickpea and make it a bit more filling.
