This Crunchy Chickpea Mediterranean Salad is an easy and healthy everyday salad. It has roasted chickpeas, quinoa, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and feta. Drizzled with a simple lemon vinaigrette. The perfect salad for a side or healthy lunch.



For the Salad

  • 4 ounces lettuce (romaine or baby crispy green leaf)
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered (depending on size)
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted chickpeas (I like Biena)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta

For the Simple Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Make the Simple Lemon Vinaigrette. In a small bowl or jar, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Assemble the Salad. In a large bowl, add the lettuce, quinoa, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, chickpeas, and feta. (or you can assemble in individual bowls)
  3. Drizzle with the Simple Lemon Vinaigrette. Toss to combine. 
  4. Serve and enjoy!


You can make this Crunchy Chickpea Mediterranean salad ahead of time, though you should top with the roasted chickpeas right before serving so they stay crunchy.
