This easy chickpea Greek salad is a twist on the classic with roasted tomatoes and crispy chickpeas plus the usual cucumbers, olives, onions and feta.
- For salad
- 2 cups halved grape tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1–15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup diced cucumbers
- 1 cup halved pitted Kalamata olives
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onions
- 4 ounces crumbled feta
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- For vinaigrette
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss the tomatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Spread the tomatoes on a sheet pan arranging them cut side up.
Toss the chickpeas with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Spread chickpeas across another sheet pan.
Roast the tomatoes and chickpeas for 30-35 minutes. The tomatoes should be wrinkled and slightly juicy in the center. The chickpeas should be golden and crisp. Let them cool for 20 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, chickpeas, cucumbers, olives, onions, feta and parsley.
For the vinaigrette, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, mustard, oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Then whisk in the olive oil until the dressing is fully combined.
Drizzle the vinaigrette into the salad, gently tossing to combine.
Great recipe! I’m learning how to make veggies taste better, and this was just what I needed. Love the roasted tomatoes and crispy chickpeas.
I made this today exactly how the recipe is and it came out fantastic!!
Greek salads are my favorite. Vinaigrette dressing is a welcome plus as long as it’s lightly applied.
Looking forward to trying this
I made this and I couldn’t help myself. So good! AND! my daughter almost 2 years old loved it as well.
Wow! You have a good eater at your house. I don’t think I could convince my 2-year-old to get excited about a salad.
We just made this, it turned out delicious! !
That’s great! Thanks for letting me know!
