I am 100% obsessed with Greek food. A Greek salad is my go-to lunch most days. This bowl right here is a combination of all the things I love. The chopped Greek salad and marinated chick peas are awesome on their own but even better together. Throw in some quinoa, hummus, and kale and you have a healthy lunch or dinner bowl. Both the chopped salad and the chick peas can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to assemble. This is also great served with extra pita chips or toasted Naan bread to scoop everything up with. I usually store everything in separate containers and then just scoop out into a bowl when I am ready to eat.
