  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Notes

Make an extra batch or two of dressing and store in a glass jar in the fridge for a marinade or to use for a quick lunch!

Storage: You can store this salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

Vegan feta cheese: If you're not vegan or dairy free, regular feta is obviously a fine alternative. We love VioLife vegan feta – it's SO good! 

I'm not a fan of raw red onion, but if you are, feel free to add some to this salad. You can also add quick pickled red onion for some extra zing.

For some extra spice, add some chopped pepperoncini peppers.

Avocado makes for a great topping and a nice way to add more healthy fats!

Serve on a bed of leafy greens like romaine, spinach, or butter lettuce.

Not a fan of chickpeas? Try white beans instead.

Crunch factor: top with seeds (I like sea salted sunflower seeds) or croutons.
