Greek Cucumber and Chickpea Salad

By Pavani @napavani
Blogging Marathon# 62: Week 2/ Day 2 Theme: Salads Dish: Greek Cucumber Salad Today's salad is extremely easy to put together, very filling and absolutely refreshing. I made this salad along with Greek Lemony Dill rice that I posted last month. It is a great to serve as a side dish or on its own for a light meal.
Greek style Cucumber & Chickpea Salad Recipe is from Cooking Light magazine. I wasn't a big fan of dill for a long time. I thought it had a very strong flavor that was overpowering. But recently I started liking it quite a bit, especially when used in Greek style dishes like tzatziki sauce or Spanakopitas.
Greek style Cucumber & Chickpea Salad Dill absolutely makes this salad, giving it a fresh, herbaceous flavor that brightens up the whole dish. It is a satisfying bowl of crunchy, creamy and chewy textures.
