Fresh Feta Chickpea Salad Recipe

It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients to make a tasty side dish or salad. Chickpeas, feta cheese, avocado, cilantro and lime juice pull together a healthy and easy to throw-together at the last minute. It is a crowd-pleaser at gatherings or family meals!

It seems like just about every week in the spring/summer there is an opportunity to throw together a quick salad for something or another. A birthday party, holiday gathering, play date. My stepmom sent me this recipe a few weeks ago and I've had it sitting on my kitchen counter because I knew I'd be making it soon! It was beyond easy, it was a great combination of flavors and it got devoured quickly at our Mother's Day gathering. Put this one on your QUICK AND EASY summer list, along with these favorites: Edamame Tomato Corn Salad, Loaded Veggie Salad, Olive Tomato Feta Salad and Broccoli Salad!

Toss the following ingredients together in a large bowl.

Stir and chill! See? EASY!
