Ingredients:

  • 3 cups (506g) canned chickpeas (rinsed and drained)

  • 2 medium (402g) cucumber (medium dice)

  • 2 medium (184g) roma tomato (medium dice)

  • 2 small (86g) shallot (finely diced)

  • ½ cup (56g) reduced-fat feta (crumbled)

  • ½ cup (54g) chopped parsley

  • ⅓ cup (81g) lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  2. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and season with freshly ground black pepper to taste. Stir to combine.

  3. The salad can be enjoyed immediately but is best served chilled. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Enjoy!

Notes:
