Summer Chickpea Salad

We are having a bit of a heat wave right now and the heat is making me crave refreshing salads.  I had a version of this yummy salad at a friend’s and I have modified it slightly to suit our family’s taste buds.

It is full of protein and flavour and looks great, too!

Chickpea Salad

  • 2 (19 oz) cans of chick peas, drained & rinsed
  • 1 package of cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • feta cheese (add as much as you like)
  • onion or scallions, diced (add as much as you like)
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (I used slightly less)
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste

Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano.  Combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl and pour dressing over and toss gently.  Add salt & pepper.

Try it – I hope you will like it!
