Greek Salad With Spiced Crispy Chickpeas

Need to change up your salad style, guys? This simple Greek salad is jazzed up with crunchy spicy chickpeas to twist it, and look how colourful is it with the peppers cut that way. The saltiness of the olives, creaminess of the feta, crunch, and spice of the chickpeas, and tanginess (is that even a word?) of the dressing is the perfect summer combo. You probably have all the ingredients to hand already, so what’s stopping you?? Feta was late than never!! 😉 Ha.
