Ready in 15 minutes, this easy Mediterranean Chickpea Salad is loaded with fresh veggies, topped with creamy feta cheese, and tossed in a zippy lemon dressing.
To give the flavors time to meld, first make the dressing. In a small bowl combine the juice from one large lemon with olive oil, red wine vinegar, fresh minced/pressed garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Whisk well and set aside.
Drain and rinse chickpeas and add to a medium-large bowl.
Chop peppers, tomato, cucumber, onion, and parsley. Add to bowl with chickpeas and mix well.
Whisk dressing once more and pour over salad. Stir well and top with crumbled feta and optional fresh dill.
Feel free to adjust salt and pepper to taste, if desired. The longer this salad sits the more the flavors intensify so feel free to let it marinate a bit before diving in. This scrumptious salad can be enjoyed room temperature or chilled before serving - it's great both ways!
This tasty recipe yields 4 hearty servings but could also be divided into 6 smaller portions if needed.
