Marinated Chickpea and Artichoke Salad with Feta

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

This has a nice Middle Eastern flavor and is very simple to make and just requires a few hours to marinate to blend the flavors. Goes great as a side dish or stuffed into halves of warmed pita bread.

I came back to this page because I am making this for the fourth time, and realized I had forgotten to rate it. Five stars it is!! Every time I make it, I get requests for the recipe. One woman said she could live off this salad. Me too, but I would like a nice glass of wine and some crusty bread to go with it! I had not a clue as to the za'atar spice until I went sleuthing ... for a quick fix, I just mixed equal parts of basil, marjoram, oregano and thyme. Some sources called for lemon zest as well. Thanks for sharing, Sue! You've made my dinner special on several occasions!
