Tuna and Chickpea Salad + plus a cute Job quote :)

This salad is great with some baked wheat tortilla chips, wrapped in a fresh pita, or just on its own! Super quick, easy, healthy and inexpensive.
I told Job we were having chickpeas for lunch and he said,

I get why they are called chickpeas. Because once the outside layer is gone they do look like little cheeks :) (he thought they were called cheekpeas hehe. I could just die, that man is so cute :)

Anyways, here 'tis for your eating pleasure:

Tuna and Chickpea Salad
  • 1 (5 ounce) can tuna, drained
  • 1 (16 ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
  • 1 (2.25 ounce) can black olives, chopped (optional. Job doesn't like 'em but I do)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese, or more to taste
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Stir the tuna, chickpeas, olives, parsley, red onion, lemon juice, and feta cheese together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Forgive the messy bowl. Any food blogger would be horrified ;) But this is really is just a "throw and go" recipe which I like.


  1. Wow, that looks yummy. I love 'cheekpeas' too.

  2. this looks like a super fresh & healthy salad! <3

  3. I have been calling chickpeas 'baby butts' since I was 3 years old I think. I mean it's just obvious right?
