I served this salad with my Easiest Chicken Ever, it is fresh tasting , and crunchy. very easy and can be made throughout the year. it is very good using heirloom tomatoes, which I couldn’t find this time out. It’s also perfect with small, grape tomatoes, which can be found everywhere, at any time. Enjoy! pretty low in calories as well. 🙂 Just saying…. this is a delightful fresh tasting side dish and perfect for any bbq or dinner you may be having.
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained (try and buy the organic ones)
1 pint cherry, grape or heirloom (if in season) tomatoes. (If you are using the little ones, cut them in 1/2. If you are using the larger ones, slice.)
2 oz (approx. 1/3 cup or to your liking) feta, crumbled or cubed
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (approx. 1 average lemon)
freshly ground black pepper
dried oregano gives it a real mediterranean flavor use as little or as much as you’d like
Combine everything in a bowl and season with salt and pepper and oregano to taste, flavors will come together nicely , I let it sit out for app. 1/2 hour before serving, give it a mix from the bottom before serving. Taste for seasoning.
