Greek Chickpea Salad – Fast, Easy and Delicious!

Are you ready for a super tasty summer salad that takes little time to prep?! Honestly who has time to spend in the kitchen slaving over meals and sides in the summertime…we don’t! We try to spend as much time outside soaking up the glorious sunshine as possible in the summer months, we have to really, about 5 months of the year we have snow on the ground! Anyway, enough about the weather, let’s get started on that tasty Greek Chickpea Salad!!


I promise you (with prep included) you will have this salad ready to go in under 15 minutes, making it the easiest side dish to bring to any BBQ or gathering you have going on this weekend. It is loaded full of fresh veggies, black olives and of course chickpeas, and then drizzled with your favorite Greek salad dressing. I love how versatile this Chickpea Salad is too, you can add in fresh zucchini, cherry tomatoes and whatever else your family prefers to clean out your crisper drawers and leave everyone asking for more.

We even have a delicious Creamy Greek Dressing that would go perfectly with this chickpea salad; and it’s just as easy to make!

Extra tips on making the best greek chickpea salad everytime

The important thing to remember with this salad is to chop your veggies the same size (approximately…I’m not gonna measure them for goodness sake!). This ensures that each bite has a little bit of everything to make your taste buds happy. Also, you can make it ahead of time and let the flavors mesh together if you prefer, which also means you don’t have to wait until the day of while you are scrambling with the kids and packing the car to go.

I love chickpea salads, they are light, but filling at the same time. And so delicious! I'm all for light cooking in summer time too, no one wants heavy dishes. Feta is a great addition. Yum!
