In need of a simple salad that is full of texture and flavor? Say no more. This loaded crunchy salad consists of all the best veggies and is paired with a simple yet tangy greek dressing! One of the many reasons I love this salad is most of the ingredients you’ll most likely have in your pantry already.

Easy, simple, and soo delicious!

How to Make Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

  1. Prep and chop all of your veggies. Then add all veggies, chickpeas, and feta cheese to a large bowl.
  2. Then whisk all of your dressing ingredients together.
  3. Pour dressing over top of your salad and mix everything together. Done!

See? Super simple steps to make this salad.  Easy tip: I love letting the dressing sit with the salad so the flavors marinate a little. When salad is finished, store in the fridge or serve right away. Easy peasy and so yummy!

Extra Vegetables To Add

This salad is already packed with plenty of vegetables. But incase you have additional vegetables on hand, here are some of my favorites to add to this salad.

  • Avocado
  • Radishes
  • Red onion
  • Celery
  • Arugula
  • White beans in replacement of chickpeas

Tips For Making Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

  • Don’t have chickpeas? Substitute white cannellini beans instead if needed.
  • Always taste the salad before serving – I usually add additional salt, cracked black pepper, and parsley on top of the salad after I toss it in with the dressing.
  • As noted above, you can add any additional vegetables to this salad. You can also add grains like quinoa, barley, or farro for texture and flavor!
  • This salad will keep well stored in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days.
