Simple Marinated Chickpea Salad

Simple Marinated Chickpea Salad. Are you looking for a great, simple salad? This is it! It is made with whole, fresh ingredients. It can be prepared quickly and is also great for meal prep.

A Simple Salad

One thing I love about this Simple Marinated Chickpea Salad is it so easy to make. It is quick to put together and made with minimal ingredients. Here is what you will need:

  • can of chickpeas
  • English or standard cucumber
  • avocado
  • red onion
  • tomatoes
  • lemon
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Perfect For Meal Prep

The Simple Marinated Chickpea Salad is also perfect for meal prep. It stores well in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you are using it for meal prep, I recommend adding in the avocados just right before you serve. Also, make sure it is wrapped well with saran wrap or an airtight lid.

A Healthy Dish

This is a healthy dish. It is loaded with fresh vegetables, chickpeas, and the only dressing being lemon juice and olive oil. It is best to get the veggies at the peak of their freshness. So you can either buy them in season or buy them from hothouse growers.

The Finished Marinated Chickpea Salad

That is it. Chop all your veggies, mix them together with the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and your salad is done! Of course, if you like, you can always add in other herbs too. I love basil and thyme in salads like this. Oregano is great as well.
