Chickpea Feta Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

Here’s a quick and tasty salad that I prepare regularly during the week for lunch or dinner. The chickpeas adds a nice amount of protein and fiber and the feta gives this salad a nice zing of added flavor. The dressing is also a quick recipe that keeps in the fridge for up to a week. Eat up, this is a healthy and delicious salad.
