Greek Style Chickpea Salad

Greek-Style Chickpea Salad

Lately, I have been making healthy yet delicious meals for my family. Some of the dishes that I have made are soups, stews and salads.  Greek salad is one of the many salads I frequently make. Last week, I found this Greek style chickpea salad recipe that had chickpeas added to it. Chickpeas are a favorite of mine, so I was really glad I stumbled upon this recipe. I made this refreshing salad yesterday and I was not disappointed. It was satisfying and delicious. The addition of chickpeas and mixed greens make this healthy side dish a complete meal. Love it!
