Chickpea & Feta Salad

Easy as 1-2-3 and gluten free!

  • Print

Most of the time I find myself looking for recipes that are easy, fast and portable. There is nothing I hate more than staring into the refrigerator and trying to decide what to eat or make when my stomach is growling. Let the 'hangry' games begin.

This chickpea salad is a staple that I always have on hand. You can quickly prepare this recipe in advance and leave it in fridge for a couple of days. (Personally, I think it tastes better after it sits for a few hours or days). It is great as a meal, side dish, snack or  topper on a salad. 

Why do I love chickpeas? Chickpeas or garbanzo beans are a healthy addition to any diet. Gluten-free, naturally low in fat, high in dietary fiber and rich in vitamins and minerals, eating chickpeas regularly can help you manage your weight and boost intestinal health. 


Chickpea & Feta Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (I used Kruners 'no salt added') 
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp red wine vinegar 
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 oz feta cheese (I used fat free, any kind will work)
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved (or more!) 
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped (or parsley flakes) 
  • 1 tbsp green onions chopped
  • dash of salt & cracked black pepper 

Directions

  • Drain the can of chickpeas and rinse the beans. Place in a bowl. 
  • Chop parsley, green onions, garlic and tomatoes.  
  • Mix all ingredients together. 
  • Enjoy! 



From one chick to another,
