If you’ve been following my free meal plans, you probably know I’ve been incorporating more meal prep recipes in them, recipes you can make once that can be served for the week. I love chickpeas in my salad and this doesn’t get easier because there is nothing to cook! Made with a fresh lemon vinaigrette, you’ll be counting down the minutes until lunch time! More meal prep lunches I like to make is are Taco Salad, Greek Chicken Meal Prep Rice Bowls, and Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli.

I’m obsessed with chickpeas and Greek Salad, so this salad combination is one I could eat everyday! When I was in Greece, I ordered Greek salad every chance I could. What was interesting was they never added lettuce, just cucumbers, olives, red onion, bell pepper and Feta cheese, which is perfect to make for meal prep because you don’t have to worry about the lettuce wilting.

Sometimes known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are extremely popular in the Mediterranean diet and are high in protein and fiber. They are also a good source of carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals making this salad satiating and great to serve as for lunch. I like using glass meal prep containers, these are the glass meal prep containers (affil link) I have and love.

Greek Chickpea Salad Variations

  • If you don’t like chickpeas you can use white beans instead.
  • Add some chopped Romaine for a more bulky salad.
  • Use larger tomatoes, sliced up in place of cherry or grape tomatoes.
  • Roast the chickpeas for some added crunch.
  • Make it dairy free with a vegan cheese in place of Feta.

Types of Feta Cheese

We love Greek, French or Bulgarian feta in brine for its creamy, smooth texture but you can use any feta cheese you have on hand. Avoid fat-free Feta which is chalky and dry.
