Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved (or about 10 ounces Roma tomatoes, chopped)
  • 1 (4 oz) can sliced black olives
  • 1 English cucumber, cut into quarters and sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper + more to taste

Instructions

  • To make the salad, place all of the ingredients for the salad into a large bowl.
  • To make the dressing, place all of the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl, (or jar w/ lid) and whisk/shake to combine. Pour dressing over salad, and toss salad in dressing until salad is evenly coated in dressing. Enjoy, or chill salad (covered) in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Notes

 Make Ahead + Storage Recommendations
  • Make ahead. This salad is great to make several hours in advance of serving it because it gets tastier over time. You can also mix the vinaigrette together up to 3 days in advance, and store it in the refrigerator.
  • Storing leftovers. Store leftover salad in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Before serving again, give it a good stir and taste + season again as needed.
