Chickpea, Tomato, and Feta Salad

We’ve been doing a lot of picnic-ing these days. The weather has been absolutely perfect for it: warm, sunny, with a light breeze but not too hot or humid! It also helps that the parks around our neighborhood have tons of nice shady picnic spots, and eating outside with kids means less mess to clean up!

And of course, since I’m obsessed with salads this summer, what else would I make for a picnic other than… a salad? 🙂

This recipe is super simple. It’s full of fresh veggies, summer tomatoes, chickpeas, feta and spices. No cooking required: just chop your veggies, toss and serve. It’s even better a few hours later once the salad has had a chance to marinate in the dressing a bit!

You can use this salad in so many different ways: serve it over mixed greens for lunch, stir in a cup of cooked quinoa for a more hearty dish, or use it as a filling for a pita or a wrap (which is also a great way to use up the leftovers).

It’s kid friendly, vegetarian, gluten-free, and is the perfect dish for a picnic, potluck or just a quick weeknight dinner!

Appetizers are the perfect complement to my favorite entrees and dinner party menus. You can also make a small batch for a snack, or turn them into a complete meal.

  1. This very close to my signature salad. I add chopped celery, carrots, sweet peppers. Also I add black beans. My son-in-law likes to also add corn niblets. I use balsamic vinegar and lime instead of lemon.
    I love your recipes. Started to follow you when I discovered your muffin recipes. Love the children recipes as well.

    • Love your additions and modifications Marsha! I’ll have to try that next time! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying my recipes and that they’re really aligned with how you like to cook as well! 🙂

  2. I’ve been trying to find a way to incorporate chick peas into my own (picky!) diet and this recipe did the trick! Very simple, fast, and yummy. Thank you!

    • Woohoo! So happy to hear that Doug – I really love this recipe because it’s so easy and healthy too, glad you enjoyed it as much as I do!
