Instructions

  1. Place all marinated feta ingredients into an air-tight container. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before using.
  2. Make the dressing: Place all dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set-aside.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 350℉. Line a sheet-tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  4. Drain cooked chickpeas and pat dry with a towel.
  5. Add chickpeas to a medium mixing bowl with oil, za’tar, and sea salt. Toss until chickpeas are well coated.
  6. Spread chickpeas onto the parchment lined sheet-tray in a single layer. Roast for 40 minutes, or until the chickpeas have started to harden.
  7. Let cool for at least 20 minutes to let the chickpeas firm up. They will be soft when you first take them out. Store in an air-tight container.
  8. In a medium mixing bowl, add in base salt ingredients. Pour 2 teaspoons of lemon vinaigrette over ingredients and toss to combine. Taste and adjust dressing as desired.
