Salad Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tsp. honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)

Salad Veggies:

  • 14.5 oz. canned chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • 6-8 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups shredded radicchio (about 1 small head)
  • ½ cup olives (pitted and chopped small)
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts (chopped small)
  • cups baby tomatoes (quartered)
  • ½ red onion (diced small)
  • ½ large cucumber (diced small)
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley (chopped small)
  • 1 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. feta cheese (optional)


  • Start by making the salad dressing. Place all salad dressing ingredients in a medium-sized bowl or jar with a tight-fitting lid, and whisk or shake well until combined. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
  • In a large mixing bowl, place the shredded romaine and radicchio. Season with ¼ tsp. sea salt and a pinch of black pepper. Toss to combine. Add 2-3 Tbsp. of the salad dressing to the bowl and toss once again.
  • In a smaller mixing bowl, place the chickpeas, baby tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, red onion, cucumber and parsley. Season with ¼ tsp. sea salt and a pinch of black pepper. Toss to combine. Add 2-3 Tbsp. of the salad dressing to the veggie/chickpea mix and toss once again.
  • Add the veggie/chickpea mix to the large mixing bowl of lettuce and gently fold to combine.
  • Add remaining salad dressing and toss one more time. If desired, add Parmesan and feta cheese before serving! Enjoy immediately.


  • Get creative with the veggies that go into this! Think of your favorite pizza toppings or add other options like sun-dried tomatoes, pepperoncinis or any color of bell pepper.
  • Add cooked chicken or ground turkey sausage to make this a complete meal!
