Author Notes

I absolutely love this salad because it’s full of texture and incredibly satiating. It’s light on greens and filled with chickpeas, lentils, feta, olives, and avocado, then tossed with a simple white wine vinaigrette. Serve it as an appetizer or split it in half for two entrées. This salad also comes together in just minutes and makes for a great lunch the next day. —Ashley McLaughlin

  • Serves
    2 to 4
Ingredients
  • For the white wine vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup

    minced shallot


  • 1/4 cup

    extra-virgin olive oil


  • 3 tablespoons

    white wine vinegar, plus more as desired


  • 1/2 teaspoon

    stone-ground mustard


  • 1/2 teaspoon

    honey or maple syrup


  • 1/2 teaspoon

    salt


  • 1/4 teaspoon

    pepper

  • For the salad:

  • 1

    large avocado


  • Juice of 1 lemon


  • 1 1/2 cups

    cooked, rinsed, and drained chickpeas


  • 3/4 cup

    cooked, rinsed, and drained French lentils


  • 1/4 cup

    sliced Kalamata olives


  • 3 to 4 ounces

    sheep’s milk feta cheese


  • 2 to 3 handfuls

    zesty baby greens


  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions
  1. Place all of the dressing ingredients in a jar. Seal and shake vigorously until well combined. Let sit for at least 10 minutes. Taste for acidity and add more vinegar as desired.
  2. Chop the avocado and toss it with the lemon juice to keep it from browning.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients together. Pour about half the dressing overtop and toss to thoroughly coat. Add more as desired, or reserve the rest for another salad.
  4. Top with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
