Do you want a quick and easy recipe that won’t heat up the kitchen? This Greek inspired chick pea salad is just the thing. It’s ready as fast as you can chop the ingredients and get it together. I added cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and fresh parsley to this salad. I used plain feta cheese, but you can use any variety to make it just the way you like. Athenos has a great variety of feta cheeses. They have many delicious flavors from lemon garlic and oregano to roasted red pepper and garlic.
I love to make dishes like this in the spring and summer. Here in central Florida, it already feels like summer, so I am pulling out all my favorite hot weather foods.
