This green bean salad is packed with flavor from quinoa, chickpeas, feta and lemon. It's healthy and full of nutrients like fiber and plant based protein. 


  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked and cooled
  • 2-3 cups green beans, ends removed and cut into inch pieces
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup feta crumbled
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh dill (1 tsp if using dried) 
  • 2-3 tbsp EVOO
  • Cracked black pepper as desired


  1. If using fresh green beans, boil in a pot of salted water for 2 minutes, blanch in an ice bath (or just rinse with cold water when time is up). Set aside
  2. Assemble all ingredients together in a large bowl, toss to combine. Add in green beans and top with more black pepper. Mix to combine. 


For best results, make sure quinoa is cooled prior to adding in other ingredients.

If making for meal prep, pair with a hard boiled egg or whole wheat crackers to achieve > 20g of protein.
