Greek Chickpea Salad Meal Prep

This Greek chickpea salad meal prep is perfect for lunch! Lemony herb dressing pairs perfectly with the protein-packed chickpea Greek salad for a filling meal.

Greek Chickpea Salad

Greek chickpea salad is my favorite salad to meal prep. Since it’s not heavy on lettuce, it doesn’t get all soggy and lasts for the whole work week in the fridge.

This salad is proof that salad is not inherently boring. It’s full of delicious flavorful ingredients and is a pleasure to eat at lunchtime.

Vegan Chickpea Greek Salad

For vegan meal prep, this recipe is relatively high in protein. Quinoa is loaded with protein, and chickpeas are also a great plant-based source of protein.

The olives and artichokes in this recipe are also great! They are full of healthy fats and beneficial fiber for gut health.

You can use any vegan greek dressing you like in this recipe, but I highly recommend making it from scratch using my recipe. There’s is just something about a freshly made dressing that makes a salad more delicious.

Chickpea Salad Meal Prep

To meal prep, you need to have suitable quality meal prep containers. This is especially true if you plan to bring your prepared meals to work.

For this recipe, I always store the dressing in a mason jar with a good lid. I like to divide the salad into individual servings in pyrex containers.

You can store the prepped salad in one big container, but dividing it into individual servings makes it easier to grab and go.

Ingredients to Meal Prep Greek Chickpea Salad

Greek chickpea salad is very simple. There aren’t many ingredients. The ingredient I do want to discuss is olive and olive juice.

You want to use brined kalamata olives. They usually come in a glass jar. Here is a link to my favorite brined olives you can buy online. It is much cheaper to buy them in the store, though.
