This easy meal prep salad is full of yummy Greek flavours like feta, olives, walnuts and mint.
1x 400g can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry (or see alternative)
½ cucumber, diced 1cm
2 tomatoes, diced 1cm
1 capsicum, diced 1cm
1 Tbsp fresh mint, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp olives, chopped
30g feta cheese, diced 0.5cm
Juice of ¼ lemon
1 Tbsp walnuts, roughly chopped
Patties (optional, alternative)
1x 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 egg yolk, whisked
Zest and juice of ¼ lemon
1 tsp soy sauce
½ tsp oil
1. Make salad. Toss all salad ingredients together in a medium bowl.
2. Alternatively, make chickpea patties using chickpeas.
3. Prep patties. Add chickpeas to a medium bowl and mash until a paste-like consistency (or use food processor). Combine all patty ingredients (except oil) in a medium bowl and mix together well. Using a tablespoon measure and clean, damp hands, roll mixture into patties, about 1cm thick.
4. Cook patties. Heat oil a medium, non-stick fry-pan on medium heat and cook patties for about 2 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through. Set aside on a paper towel to drain.
Fill your jar or bowl with Greek Salad (top with chickpea patties, if required) and sprinkle with walnuts.
