Greek Chickpea Salad is the ultimate meal prep option with vegetables that are perfect for making ahead without getting soggy with high fiber and protein.
Mediterranean Chickpea salad with feta and olives is a fantastic salad option to serve along side dishes like Tabouli Salad or Lemon Greek Chicken Skewers.
Greek Chickpea Salad
Chickpea Salad is a natural vegetarian option for people adhering to a diet because it is high in fiber and protein with the use of chickpeas which are a fantastic option. Plus, it includes two of my favorite ingredients ever, feta cheese and greek olives.
This is just a simple chickpea salad, you can certainly swap out the ingredients as you’d like. This Chickpea salad with feta is a great vegetarian option but if you’re looking for a vegan chicken salad you can leave off the feta and add a vegan cheese. I love this article from PETA regarding Vegan Cheese.
