My favorite Mediterranean restaurant right near my house has the best chopped salad ever. We order it every time we go there and quickly recreated it at home. Luckily, my version is just as delicious as the original. The restaurant version does not have roasted chickpeas on it but I started to make it with them at home and can't stop making it this way. They are so good!
This recipe is so delicious packed in my lunches at work. I love pairing it with a sandwich such as the Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin Flatbread Pocket Sandwiches which come in a few varieties including the angus cheeseburgers, chicken melts, Italian sausage melts, pizza burgers and gyro sliders.
I just take them to work frozen and microwave when I get to work. They are great for a quick lunch. They are small enough that you can pair them with a salad and some fruit for lunch and it will not be too overly filling. I like the egg white and turkey sausage version best.
These sandwiches feature 100% angus beef, all-white meat chicken, all-natural sausage and real cheeses. Not only do I enjoy these, so does my daughter and husband. They make a perfect quick meal and are very tasty. They are available nationally at places such as Kroger, Costco, Sam's Club and more.

The chopped Greek salad features chopped cucumber, tomato, green onion, parsley, feta cheese, roasted chickpeas and a fresh lemon vinaigrette. It is super quick to make (aside from the chickpeas) and is perfect to pack with your lunch for a boost of fiber, vitamins and minerals along with some protein from the beans. I have also made it without feta cheese or with green pepper. All versions are delicious!
Troy, Adalyn and I cannot stop eating this salad when I make it. Whether I make a huge portion or a smaller one, it all seems to disappear in about 5 minutes. Adalyn is new to crunchy chickpeas and instantly fell in love which is why I keep making them. I will just roast up a big pan at a time (using 2 cans of garbanzo beans) and flavor them with garlic or make them salt and vinegar flavored. Adalyn begs me for "crunchy sour beans" as she calls them all the time! Haha.
