Simple, fresh, hearty and packed with all the best Mediterranean flavors! Perfect for any occasion -- light meal, as a side dish or served alongside brunch. Makes a large quantity and stays fresh for days.
In a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, whisk all ingredients until well combined. Set aside. Note any extra dressing saves well in the refrigerator for several days in a sealed jar.
Basic Greek Chickpea Salad
Place all ingredients except parsley in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad to taste and toss to combine. Stir in parsley.
Adding in Spinach and quinoa
Option 1: Add the entire amount of spinach and quinoa to the salad, toss to combine and enjoy! The spinach stays fresh and doesn't wilt for about a day or two.
Option 2: If only eating half the salad at a time, divide the salad in 1/2 (approximately 3 cups) and add 1 cup quinoa and 1 cup spinach, toss to combine and serve. Save the second half of the salad in a sealed container in the refrigerator and add the second cup of spinach and quinoa when ready to serve so that it's super fresh!
