Simple Mediterranean Salad


It’s  Monday and you know you’ve been bad this weekend – if you’re anything like me. Make this salad for dinner tonight and you will feel loads better and satisfied because the chickpeas in this are full of protein. This is a very simple recipe so feel free to adjust everything to your liking. This being my entire meal, I like to eat it with pita bread or toasted tortillas. Of course this also makes a great side salad that goes with practically everything.

Simple Mediterranean Salad


  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 medium Persian cucumbers, diced
  • 1/4 of small red onion, finely diced
  • fresh mint, chopped, to taste
  • fresh parsley, chopped, to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. wine vinegar of your choice


  1. Combine all the vegetables and herbs in a large bowl, add salt and pepper, drizzle with the EVOO, add the vinegar, toss well to combine. Finish with a sprinkling of mint and/or parsley and serve. This can also stay in the fridge for a couple of hours and chill.
