I’ve been all about the big, bright salads lately!  I love this chopped chickpea Greek salad because it’s loaded with all my favorite salad veggies in a simple homemade dressing. I started making all my own salad dressings a few years ago, and let me tell ya, what a difference it makes!

I’ve always loved chopped salads – my absolute favorite is the chopped salad from Portillos. This one has more of a Greek vibe to it with kalamata olives and a red wine vinaigrette. I added chickpeas instead of chicken, so this salad still has lots of plant-protein but stays vegetarian.

Make Chopped Greek Salad Vegetarian for a Healthy Version

This vegetarian Greek chickpea salad recipe is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegetarian recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless meals for your table.
