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 for just 2 smart points per serving.

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.

Chickpea Salad is a natural vegetarian option for people adhering to the Weight Watchers program because it is high in fiber and protein with the use of chickpeas which are a fantastic option now because they are 0 smart points per serving.

One of the best additions to the zero points list is the beans and chickpeas. Chickpeas used to be impossible to work into a day (or more than 1/4 cup of them) because they were so high in points. Take this recipe for example, I have listed both smart points and points plus values for it. It has 2 smart points per serving (because of the dressing, olives and cheese) while it has 9 points plus points (thanks mostly in part to the points for the chickpeas).

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.
