CLICK HERE FOR MORE EASY & DELICIOUS SALAD RECIPES FOR WEIGHT WATCHERS!
Skinny Chopped Greek Salad. Chickpeas, cucumber, grape tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives and feta cheese tossed in a simple lemon olive oil dressing. (The recipe called for some chopped romaine but I intentionally left it out, so I could store this easy, healthy chopped Greek salad in the fridge for a couple of days without it getting soggy.)
Skinny on Chopped Greek Salad
If you’re a Greek salad fan like me, this is a fun twist that holds up for a couple of days in the fridge, making it a great choice to pack for work. I eat at home most days and love having something quick and easy ready and waiting. This salad definitely does the trick. The chickpeas with their protein and fiber make it a little more filling too.
According to my calculations each serving has 152 calories , *4 Weight Watchers Points Plus and *4 SmartPoints.
I thought this salad was delicious as written, but feel free to experiment and adjust it to suit your tastes. The great thing about salads is that they hardly need a recipe at all. If you wanted to jazz it up a bit, a little oregano, chopped fresh dill, or mint would be nice. Enjoy!
An easy, healthy and delicious variation of one of my favorite salads of all time - Greek Salad - this one chopped with chickpeas for added protein.
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 can (14 to 19 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cubed
- 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 2 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce
- 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
- 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
In a small bowl make the dressing by whisking together the lemon juice, olive oil, pepper and salt, then set it aside.
In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, cucumber, red bell pepper, romaine, tomatoes, red onion, and olives.
Drizzle the dressing over the chopped salad ingredients and toss gently to coat everything with the dressing.
Taste and add more salt and pepper, if necessary, to suit your tastes. Sprinkle with the feta and serve immediately
