Chickpea and Feta Salad and Good Cook Giveaway

 The weather is hot and any dish a I can make without turning the stove on is a plus.  This salad comes together in 5 minutes, it's healthy and my kids loved it.

I am also happy to announce that Good Cook is offering 4 vegetable/citrus keeper sets to be given away here at my blog. They gave me a set to try out and I loved the fun and cute keepers.  Sometimes when I make a recipe I only need a half of a lemon, lime, onion, cucumber etc.... These keepers are perfect to put those leftovers in and save until you use them again.  I used to put my onions and tomatoes in a sandwich baggie or plastic wrap, but they can get mushed and dented and not so good looking by the time I go to eat them again. You can even use the larger cantaloupe keeper to store this salad.   So please go to links below and click on the keepers to take a look at them.  Like and Pin them to Facebook to help qualify to win a keeper set.  You have more chances to win below as well.  Good luck! :)

1 (15oz) can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained well)
1 tomato diced
1/2 English cucumber (or regular cucumber seeded) diced
1/2 red onion finely diced
1/2 cup Feta cheese
1/2 Tbs minced fresh mint
1 Tbs minced fresh parsley

1/2 lemon juiced
1 Tbs canola oil
salt and black pepper to taste
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1/4 tsp cumin powder

Place all prepped ingredients in bowl.  Prepare dressing.  Mix all ingredients together with dressing and chill for 1 hour. Enjoy.

  2. YUM! I'm not a fan of chickpeas, but think I would love the rest of it. I think you've inspired a new salad for me! :)

    You've done a fabulous job of staging your keepers pics. I'm a Good Cook, too. :)

  3. i would get good use of the grapefruit keeper!

  4. My husband simply will not try chickpeas. It is so frustrating. Lucky for me I have a potluck at work coming up. This will be my dish. Looks light and refreshing.

  5. Oh, that salad looks so amazing. Perfect for summer! And I love those veggie keepers. I'm constantly having to throw away halves of tomatoes because they get mushed or pushed to the back of the fridge where they turn into liquid in a ziploc...pretty gross.

  6. This salad look superb! I really like all the ingredients!

  7. I would use the tomato keeper the most

  8. I would use the citrus keeper all the time.

  13. This is my kind of salad! Those keepers would be great money savers. I have thrown out so many veggies!

  14. Wow Ramona , that looks simply too good. Love feta cheese in any salad ;-)

  15. Oh these are so adorable! We would use the Cantalope one the most...but all of them would get lots of use! What a great idea!

  16. The cantaloupe keeper would be the one I would use the most. Love them all!

  17. I would really like the green pepper keeper. I often use just half a pepper in salads, etc.

  18. This was a wonderful recipe. I had a number of people ask me for the recipe. I didn't have any mint but it still turned out great!

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe. :) It's a perfect salad for a party. :)
