Many of you that completed my reader survey last month wanted to see more lunch recipes so I’m excited to share one of my go-to lunch recipe with you today! It’s a simple chickpea, tomato and feta salad that can be thrown together in just a couple minutes and can be altered depending on your taste and what’s in your fridge.
Chickpea, Tomato and Feta Salad
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
– 1 teaspoon dried oregano
– coarse salt and pepper, to taste
– 1 cup heirloom or grape tomatoes, halved
– 1/2 cup of canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
– 1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and oregano in a small bowl. Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, and feta and stir. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
This salad keeps really well and can be made the night before. If you don’t have white balsamic vinegar, it’s also great with red wine vinegar.
For a caprese version, substitute the feta for fresh mozzarella pearls, the dried oregano for basil and the white balsamic for a high quality dark balsamic vinegar or a balsamic glaze. So delish!
