Ingredients
  

  • 1 English cucumber, chopped (about a cup)
  • 1-2 tomatoes, chopped (about 1.5 cups)
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped (yellow, white, or red)
  • 1 can chickpeas drained
  • 14 Kalamata olives pitted
  • 8 fresh mint leaves, diced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp extra olive oil
  • 1 tsp reduced balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Chop the cucumber, tomato, and onion. Add to a bowl.
  • Drain a can of chickpeas and add to the bowl. (I have yet to find a better brand than Goya for chickpeas.)
  • Add diced mint, olives, and feta cheese to the bowl.
  • Drizzle some olive oil and the juice of half a lemon directly to the bowl.
  • Sprinkle some salt, pepper, and oregano over the top, and mix ingredients well.
  • Drizzle a little reduced balsamic vinegar across the top and garnish with a mint leaf.
  • If you have any crusty French bread (perhaps leftover from the night before?), rip it up and toss it in! It's a great addition.
  • Serve in 2-3 bowls. Top with chicken or shrimp if desired.
