Step 1In a large bowl, toss together the drained chickpeas, cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, olives, feta, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, be careful with the salt since the feta and olives are both salty.

Step 2Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and oregano. Let sit for 5-10 minutes if possible. This will mellow out the raw garlic flavor.
