Cucumber Chickpea Salad

Chickpea Cucumber SaladI was planning on making this great lentil salad as a side dish for our veggie burgers last night but didn’t have any corn so I made this up and it turned out quite good, and just in time for summer – this will be a new go-to for a light and healthy side:

Ingredients:

1 English cucumber, cut into bite size pieces (I cut them in ½ moon)
1 cup rinsed and drained canned chickpeas
1 tomato diced (recipes always call for deseeding, but I never do… so its up to you)
½ purple onion diced into tiny pieces
2 cloves of garlic minced
¼ cup feta cheese crumbled
½ lemon squeezed
2 tbsp olive oil

Directions:  

Cut up the cucumber, tomato, onion and garlic mix together with the chickpeas and feta in one bowl. Squeeze lemon, and pour olive oil over the salad and stir together. Best if you let sit in the fridge to absorb the flavours. Enjoy!
