Tomato Cucumber Chickpea Salad

Tomato Cucumber Chickpea Salad

This easy 5-ingredient tomato cucumber chickpea salad is a summer staple. It’s simple, light, and fresh! Perfect for a meal prep lunch, BBQ side dish, or backyard picnic. 

Plus it’s versatile. You can easily modify the recipe in the following ways:

  • Use cherry or grape tomatoes. 
  • Try a variety of fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, or oregano. 
  • Swap chickpeas for white beans. 
  • Add red onion or chopped bell peppers for more veggies (I might try that next time!)
  • Add your choice of protein, like canned tuna or leftover grilled chicken.

This salad will taste best with fresh produce. I can’t wait until tomatoes start popping up at the farmer’s market. That’s when they’re extra sweet and juicy! 

If you’re tired of the same spinach salad, try this tomato cucumber chickpea salad to change it up.
