Greek chickpea salad

Greek salad is low in calories and nutrient dense, enrich with flavours. This salad contain phytonutrients, antioxidants and vitamins which reduces the risk of certain chronic disease like heart disease and cancer. I also used beans and chickpeas that provide protein and make it filling meal for lunch OR served on its own. The best part of this salad is that there is NO cooking required, yes just throw all ingredients once and toss them with dressing.


Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber

  • 1 fresh tomato ( or cherry tomatoes 8-10)

  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper

  • 1 red onion, sliced thinly

  • 1/2 cup parsley

  • 1/2 pitted kalamata olives

  • 1/2 can chickpeas

  • 1/2 can red kidney beans

  • 1/3 cup feta cheese


For the dressing

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon mixed herbs

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon garlic powder

pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper


How to make

Whisk together all dressing ingredients in a jar or jug. In a large bowl, add all salad ingredients and drained chickpeas, toss with dressing. Now add feta cheese and combine well. Enjoy immediately or place in the fridge for later.
