This vegan chopped chickpea salad is fresh, healthy, and loaded with vegetables. An easy no-cook lunch or dinner!  Naturally vegan and gluten free, this salad will be loved by everyone at your table.
I am a huge fan of no-cook lunches and dinners in the summer, and this salad is the perfect meal for the heat.  This vegan chopped chickpea salad is loaded with garden-fresh veggies like cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, and onions.  If you have extra from the garden, this salad is a perfect recipe to let those veggies shine.

This Chopped Chickpea Salad Is:

  • Bright
  • Crunchy
  • Vibrant
  • Protein-packed
  • Healthy
  • Tangy
  • Great to make with fresh garden produce
  • Vegan, gluten-free, dairy free, vegetarian, the works!
This salad is great for vegan meal prep lunches during the week. I prepped a whole week’s worth and was able to enjoy it while working from home.  After I made the salad, I portioned it into airtight containers, stored them in the fridge, and was able to grab one at lunchtime and eat.

What’s In This vegan Chopped Chickpea Salad?

  • Cooked chickpeas: you can use canned or cook them from scratch.  I cook all my beans from scratch in my Instant Pot (recipe for my perfect Instant Pot Chickpeas here if you want to check it out).  Dried beans are incredibly inexpensive, and cooking them yourself also cuts back on the sodium.  A win/win if you ask me.
  • Cucumbers: leave the skin on or peel them, up to you!
  • Tomatoes: I diced up some cherry tomatoes that we had in the fridge, but use any variety or your favorite tomato.  Bonus points if they are garden-fresh 🙂
  • Carrot: for color and a little extra crunch!
  • Red Onion: for a bit of a kick and bright bold flavor.
  • Parsley: I love fresh chopped parsley, and the herb brightens this dish and gives a fresh earthy crunch in each bite.
  • Quick homemade dressing: made with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, salt and pepper.

Unlike most meal prep salad that wilt after a few days, this vegan chopped chickpea salad stays fresh and crunchy.  The veggies hold up well in the dressing, and the chickpeas marinade and become soft and sweet in the dressing.  It actually tastes better after a few days!

How Do I Make This Vegan Chopped Chickpea Salad?

  1. In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrot, parsley, and red onion.
  2. In a mason jar, add all the dressing ingredients, seal with an airtight lid, and shake well to combine.

This made an awesome lunch, it was super flavorful and kept me full until dinner. The dressing is simple and bright, and it felt so good to eat whole clean ingredients together in one big bowl.  This was a favorite and we will definitely be enjoying this again!
