Chickpea Veggie Salad: Best. Salad. Ever!

Chickpea Veggie Salad: Best. Salad. Ever!

Some salads are simply superior – and that’s all we have to say.



Some salads just sell themselves. It’s that bright, alluring color palette, array of shapes and sizes of ingredients, and the many textures from firm yet juicy to soft yet crunchy. This salad has dimension and it’s been made with love.

For most of us, eating (or preparing) salads isn’t always easy – or exactly what we want to make. But when it comes to delicious salads that you can feel good about eating, we have a crowd-pleaser you’ll want to make again and again.

This chickpea salad is also easy! You can try variations on the recipe below by pulling in hard-boiled egg or swapping out olives (if they aren’t your thing). Add some quinoa for a little more texture and added protein.

Want to make it vegan? Pull out the feta and add some nuts or sunflower seeds.
