Roasted Chickpea Salad Instructions

Preheat your oven to 200°C.

In a bowl, toss the drained chickpeas with olive oil, smoked paprika, ground cumin, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper until they’re evenly coated. Spread them out on a baking sheet in a single layer.

Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20-30 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through, until they’re golden and crispy. Let them cool on the stovetop while you assemble the salad.

In a large salad bowl, combine the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, avocado, and feta cheese if you’re using it.

In a small jar or bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing: olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Put the lid on and shake until well combined and creamy.

To your salad bowl, add the chickpeas and the salad ingredients and mix well, then drizzle over the dressing and mix gently to combine. Serve, then sprinkle with fresh parsley and more feta over the top.
