This Chopped Greek Quinoa Salad with Pita Chip Croutons is filled with lots of crunchy veggies, chickpeas, quinoa, handfuls of fresh herbs, feta, and crushed pita chips to top it all off! It's dressed with a super simple red wine vinegar and lemon vinaigrette. It's the perfect texture-filled salad to add to your lunch routine!
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, quinoa, chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, parsley, mint, oregano, and feta. Toss to combine. Add the pita chips and toss again. Add desired amount of dressing and toss. Finish with a few pinches of salt and pepper, and the lemon zest. Toss one more time to combine. Serve!
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if desired. If you want a more "emulsified" dressing, you can make this in the blender or food processor as well. Will keep in the fridge for up to one week!
*You can sub romaine, butter lettuce, red leaf lettuce, or whatever your favorite tender green is!
*2/3 cup of dry quinoa yields about 2 cups of cooked quinoa!
