Cucumber and Chickpea Salad

I am always looking for new salad recipes. I came across The Modern Proper’s cucumber salad recipe and had to test it out!

I modified this recipe based on what I had in my fridge and personal preference.

Below, see my version of Modern Proper’s recipe.

Salad Dressing

I love salad dressing! I think it makes or breaks a salad. This dressing is tangy, cooling, and refreshing. It is pretty comparable to a tzatziki sauce. I enjoy adding greek yogurt to my salad dressing because it adds a thickness and creamy flavour!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of Za’atar
  • Dash of S&P

Directions- just combine!

The Base

This salad is great if you’re looking for a refreshing, light salad. It is packed with greens, herbs, and plant based protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber thinly sliced (I used English Cucumber)
  • Handful of onions (I used white- but I would of preferred red)
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup of fresh dill
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Bed of spinach per salad
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Clubhouse Greek seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • S&P to taste

Directions

  1. Thinly slice cucumber, dice onions, chop herbs, and mince garlic. Add ingredients to a bed of spinach.
  2. Rinse chickpeas.
  3. To a frying pan, add chickpeas, garlic powder, S&P, and Clubhouse Greek seasoning. Fry for 5-9 minutes.
  4. Add chickpeas to salad.

5. Swipe to mix!

Overall, this salad is a great option for people who love refreshing, green salads. However, I will be honest, it is not a great option for people who don’t love earthy, green, wholesome flavours.
