Roasted Chickpea Greek Salad

Still trying to use up my lettuce in new ways! I was going to make this in to a wrap of some sort, but I had a veggie sandwich for lunch (Rye bread with cucumbers, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and roasted peppers).  The other day my friend told me about how she roasted some chickpeas, and I got overly excited because I had just bought some, so I knew I wanted to do that today.

Roasted Chickpeas- Set oven to 450. 1 can of chickpeas rinsed and dried. I put them in a bowl with a bit of avocado oil (or oliveoil ), and a bit of salt, pepper, and paprika. Then I  roasted them on a sheet pan for about 15 minutes.

Used this Greek Dressing, but you could make your own or buy some taziki sauce.

My favorite hummus involves black olives, but there are so many great flavors out there now. Homemade hummus is not “hard” but I am the only person who eats it in my house, so I buy it. I always get it at my favorite middle eastern place. SO GOOD! Becca will even eat it with me!

This pita bread is pretty yummy. I toasted it to make some pita chips.

Final salad bowl with some tomatoes from the farmers market, black olives, feta, and cucumbers. I put a dollop of hummus in the middle with the olives on top. Without the pita and possibly the dressing since it comes from a bottle, this is gluten free. I did see a gluten free pita and flatbread at Publix and homemade taziki is not hard to make.

You could also totally add some grilled chicken, shrimp, or lamb if you want! The possibilities are endless with salad 😉
