A bright and colorful Chopped Chickpea Greek Salad packed with crispy veggies, salty olives and feta, and protein packed chickpeas.
I have been on a chickpea kick lately and adding them to absolutely everything. I love how they adapt to so many dishes and pack in lots of protein and fiber, and last weekend they came to my rescue. We were planning on meeting some friends for lunch and I had been craving my favorite chopped Greek salad. The only problem was that the lettuce would never hold up and I would end up with a wilted mess. Enter the chickpea. I decided to replace the lettuce with chickpeas and it may be my new favorite salad. Make sure to plan ahead so that the salad has at least 30 minutes to rest so that they flavors can really combine and get absorbed by the chickpeas.
