Do you love tangy foods? Do you love that zesty flavor that you get from vinegar and olives? Me, too!

 

Think crunchy and fresh with a big snappy flavor. You can use a variety of different vegetables you might have on hand, but I’ve found this combo is delish! I highly recommend using Kalamata olives. If you haven’t tried them, you’re missing out. They add so much to this tangy greek chickpea salad.

I’m even using my go-to, easy vinaigrette dressing. Let’s do this!

This easy recipe comes together in 20 minutes!

 

Less if you chop quickly – not too quickly, be safe and keep all your fingers. You can make it in a flash for a quick, light summer meal, salad or side dish. It’s great to take to a potluck, especially since it is vegan and gluten-free!

As I mentioned, you could use whatever veg you want and have on hand. It’s a great salad for using up all of those garden zucchini that seem to ripen all at the same time. You could simply sub zucchini for some or all of the cucumber. I’ve tried it with and without artichokes and I definitely like it with them. They give it an even zippier tang.

 

I hope you LOVE this Tangy Greek Chickpea Salad as much as I do! It’s

I like to eat it with pita bread, dolmas, hummus, and/or pakoras. I love it in a wrap. Just smear some hummus on an organic tortilla and top it with the salad. Heck, yes!

Notes

* Click here for Minimalist Baker's Aquafaba recipes. You will learn how you can use chickpea brine instead of eggs. It will save you fat, cholesterol and calories!
 
** I really like white pepper. If you haven't tried it, it's very peppery yet more subtle than black pepper. I'm not a fan of black pepper and if you aren't either, you might find you like white.
