Chickpea Feta and Cucumber Salad

Chickpea Feta and Cucumber SaladThis salad is bursting with fresh and healthy ingredients. Fresh cucumbers and cilantro straight from the garden, celery, and chickpeas. I’ve tossed it in a light dressing of fresh lime juice, pepper, and bit of ground cumin. I wanted a great salad to enjoy outside with dinner on a warmer evening, and this can go perfectly with so many meals, or by itself for a lighter lunch.

Slice the cucumbers lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Dice into bite sized pieces and place into a medium sized bowl. Dice up the celery and cilantro and add to the bowl along with the feta cheese. Next add the lime juice, ground pepper and cumin and combine.  Makes 4 servings as a side. Enjoy!
