Chickpea and Parsley salad

I find this salad to be so delicious and very satisfying. The garbanzo beans make the salad very filling, and the feta cheese coats everything to make a delicious dressing that combines everything together to make this Greek salad a perfect healthy treat!

Chickpea, Feta and Parsley Salad

Serves about 4-5 as a side dish

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • a spoonful of red chili flakes
  • 1 (14oz) of garbanzo beans
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2oz (about a handful) of feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook the red onion till lightly golden. Add garlic and chili and cook till the garlic is fragrant, I like my food a little spicier so I added a little more. Set aside to cool so it doesn’t melt the feta when you mix it in.
Drain the chickpeas, rinse and place in the salad bowl. Add crumbled feta, spring onion, parsley and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper. Add the cooled onion and garlic mixture and remaining oil and mix well.
Store in the fridge for a few hours before serving to let the salad marinate.

I hope that you find this version of a Greek salad as delicous as I do!!!
