Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Are you in the mood for a hearty salad?  I found this mediterranean chickpea salad recipe in Barefoot Contessa's latest cookbook, Foolproof and enjoyed it all last week!  It's healthy, delicious, colorful, and very fast to assemble.

Dice a couple of tomatoes, a cucumber, scallions, and add some chopped basil.


Drain and rinse a can of chickpeas.



For the dressing, you add lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil and whisk to combine. 


Toss it all together. 


Then add feta cheese.


For a hearty accompaniment, I baked two pita bread slices at 350 for about 10 minutes.  A touch of olive oil and they're good to go! 


I couldn't get enough of this salad.  Hope you like it!
