  1. Begin by preparing the Tzatziki Dressing. In a mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, dill, salt, and pepper. Whisk until smooth and well incorporated.

  2. Gently fold in the crumbled feta cheese, ensuring it is evenly distributed throughout the dressing. Adjust seasoning to taste.

  4. Pour the prepared Tzatziki Dressing over the salad ingredients, ensuring they are evenly coated. Toss gently until the dressing fully coats the salad.

  5. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. The salad is now ready to serve.

  6. Enjoy the Greek Chickpea Salad on its own for a satisfying lunch or pair it with additional protein options such as Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers, meatballs with tzatziki sauce, or sheet pan Greek chicken and potatoes for a complete and wholesome meal.
