mediterranean chickpea salad

Updated: May 5, 2020

This is a for sure go-to lunch in my house. It's extremely easy and SO STINKING GOOD.

It's also a perfect side for any chicken dish, a great addition to a salad, or a good little midday snack.

All you need is about 5 minutes to throw this together. Minimal ingredients needed, and you more than likely already have them all on hand.

Beef it up a little bit by adding in grains like quinoa or farro.

Make sure you have these things on hand:



red onion


olive oil

nuts or seeds (I like using walnuts or sunflower seeds)

optional grain add-in

Here's how to do it:


1 cucumber, diced

1 package of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

1/2 red onion, chopped

1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup of walnuts or sunflower seeds

2 tbsp olive oil

juice of 1/2 lemon

salt and pepper to taste


1. Mix everything together in a large bowl.

2. Serve immediately or store in fridge for up to 4 days.

Gram your med chick salad!
