Ingredients

  • For the salad:
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 15 grape tomatoes, halved (about 1 cup halved grape tomatoes)
  • 1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped if desired
  • 1 medium cucumber, sliced and quartered
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled or cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • For the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • freshly ground salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Place all salad ingredients into a large bowl and toss to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and oregano. Pour onto salad and toss again to well combine. Taste and add salt and pepper as you'd like.
  3. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour to marinate, or serve immediately. Salad is best enjoyed within 2-3 days after making.

Recipe Notes

If you're making this salad for a crowd, I recommend doubling everything to feed all of the guests! You can even make the salad 1-2 days ahead of time as the veggies will marinate beautifully in the dressing.
