This 5-Ingredient Chickpea Chimichurri Salad is so easy to make (no cooking!) and absolutely delicious. It’s made with cabbage so it doesn’t wilt, making it perfect for meal-prepping.


  • 1½ cups or 1 (15 oz.) can cooked chickpeas
  • 3 Persian cucumbers, chopped
  • 1 small red onion (or ½ medium), diced finely
  • ¼ cabbage (about ½ lb), chopped
  • 1 (8 oz.) container chimichurri sauce
  • Salt & pepper, to taste, optional


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the chickpeas, chopped cucumbers, diced red onion, and chopped cabbage. Add the chimichurri sauce on top and toss to combine.
  2. Taste, and add any salt and/or pepper if desired. 
  3. Serve at room temperature or chilled. It will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days (though it’s freshest for the first 2).
