I love chickpea salad in all Greek eateries. I always made it at home, used best ingredients possible, even cooked chickpeas at home instead of canned chickpeas but salad never tasted the same until I found the secret ingredient that takes greek chickpea salad to a whole new level. It makes it aromatic and adds a special touch of taste, really earthy and divine, almost like you eating in a greek fine dinner.

No more guesses, highly likely you already know it, it is just I never used my mind enough. That special ingredient is Oregano, a wonder herb that makes all difference between a plain chickpea salad and a Greek chickpea salad.

Of course, feta, cucumbers have their special integral place but oregano is my secret key weapon to enjoy greek style food at home.
