Hey hey you lovely lot – I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
I’ve been craving big, bold, vibrant salads lately and the traditional Greek salad has always been a favorite of mine. However, I often find it’s not filling enough to be a main meal for me. So I came up with this Greek – inspired chickpea salad which we absolutely love. It’s filling, takes 5 mins to put together and makes a really nice, well balanced meal.
The dressing pairs beautifully with it and you can customize it with different veggies if you prefer – this is my fave combo however!
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 large tomatoes, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
3-4 tablespoons black olives
1 cup Small colored peppers, chopped
1 cup baby corn; grilled
1/2 – 1 block Feta cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
Start by grilling baby corn for a few mins in a tablespoon or so of olive oil. While that’s cooking, chop all your veggies and place them in a large bowl.
Add cooked corn, olive and crumbled feta on top.
Add all dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together until combined.
Pour dressing over salad, mix everything together and serve.
That’s it from me for today – I’ll be back with a new blog post Every Single Saturday 🙂
