Easy Chickpea Or Pasta Salad

Published Monday, 03 November, 2014 by Ellen

Just an easy healthy option for work/school lunches



  • 1 can chickpeas or pasta
  • sliced olives (you can usually buy them pre-sliced from the deli)
  • feta
  • tzatziki for dressing
  • from here you can add anything, some suggestions-
  • celery
  • red onion
  • cherry tomatoes
  • red capsicum
  • cucumber
  • snow peas/sugar snap peas
  • radish
  • tuna
  • mint/coriander/basil/parsley
  • etc.
  • i'm quite strapped for cash at times so i usually just put in what i have or can afford, but any or all of the above would be delicious.


This is what i do.

i usually prepare 2 lunches at a time.

i drain and rinse the chickpeas, and use half the can for each lunch. Separate them into 2 separate containers, add the olives and feta and whatever else you may like, shake to mix and put it in the fridge ready for the next day.

or, replace the chickpeas with al dente pasta.

i also take a really small airtight container with a tablespoon (you really don't need a lot) of tzatziki dip. When you're ready to have your lunch, mix the tzatziki into the salad and enjoy.

very healthy and very yummy.
