A healthy vegan mediterranean salad with chickpeas and olives.
The very first time I made a version of this salad was years ago when I just wanted a light salad for lunch and just acted upon my instinct to add some chickpeas in there to keep me full and satisfied longer. I was pleasantly surprised by how quick, fresh and delicious this salad came out! Needless to say, it just became one of our favorite recipes! Imagine my surprise when I learned that this is actually a mediterranean type of salad. Over the years, the recipe evolved into the current one we enjoy now. This mediterranean chickpea salad takes no time at all to make and is very fresh, vibrant and incredibly delicious! I must say the red wine vinegar dressing goes very well with all the vegetables. Enjoy this salad for lunch or dinner as a wholesome meal and pack the leftovers for lunch the next day, it will taste even better.

To make the dressing pour all the ingredients into a small mason jar, cover with the lid and shake vigorously until well mixed.
