Basic Greek Chickpea Salad

  • 2 cups cucumber sliced and quartered (we used English Cucumbers)
  • 1 can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup yellow bell pepper diced
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives halved
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped

Add ons

  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa

Lemony Vinaigrette (Makes about 1/2 cup)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt or more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper or more to taste


Lemony Vinaigrette

  • 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!
