Fill Up the Bowl with Veggies!
In a large mixing bowl, with a lid if you want to store it all together, I added in the chickpeas that had been drained and rinsed. I then added in the garlic and green onion and gave it a good stir. I then chopped up the other veggies and added them in. I started with the bell pepper, then cucumber, tomatoes, and olives. After I mixed all of those in, I added in some parsley and the feta cheese in crumbles.
Making the Dressing
In a small bowl, I mixed the lemon juice with some water and salt and pepper. I mixed that together really well, then poured it over the salad.
That's It! Super easy and quick to make! Store it in the fridge and I would say make it at least an hour before you intend on eating it the first time. That way the flavors will have a chance to settle in.Keep it in the mixing bowl to save dishes, or spoon the salad into Tupperware containers and have grab and go lunches ready for the week!
