Mediterranean Chickpea Salad Recipe

Since transitioning to a vegetarian diet (you can read about my first month here) I’ve found a whole world of new ingredients has opened up to me. For example, I rarely had chickpeas in the past and in the past month I’ve enjoyed them in a number of different ways.

Mediterranean Salad Ingredients

As with a lot of my recipes, I like to share a core recipe which is really easy and then invite you to mix and match and include your ingredients of choice to create a dish to suit your tastes. 

Here are some ideas for ingredients to include in your salad: 

  • Tomatoes – you could include a variety of different sized and colours tomatoes
  • Peppers – red or orange would work well
  • Cucumber
  • Avocado 
  • Olives
  • Red Onion
  • Feta or Goats Cheese (or skip if you’d prefer a vegan salad) 

How to make Mediterranean Salad

  • Garlic – powder or crushed 
  • Spinach or another leafy vegetable 
  • Herbs – oregano, parsley or mint would work well 
  • Salt, Pepper and any other seasoning, to taste 
  • Lemon
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salad Dressing of choice 

Below is my personal favourite combination – using just 6 ingredients. I’d suggest using the recipe as a starting point and enjoy your Mediterranean Chickpea Salad anyhow you like.
