Edamame Chickpea Feta Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Whoa! WHOA! I was looking for a dish full of protein that we could eat alongside the Weight Watchers Cabbage Soup. Found it! Full of protein and fiber, and it's delicious!

6.5 oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (1/2 of a 15oz can) (I used the whole can)
1 1/2 c edamame, shelled and cooked
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 english cucumber, seeds removed, chopped (I used a regular cucumber)
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 c fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 c red-fat crumbled feta cheese

For the Lemon Tahini Dressing:1/3 c tahini1 lemon, juiced1 garlic clove1/4 tsp sea salt
4 tbsp water (more or less depending on the texture of the dressing you want)1 teaspoon olive oil

In a large mixing bowl combine the first 7 ingredients (chickpeas through the feta cheese) and mix. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. In a blender blend together the ingredients for the lemon tahini dressing. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently toss to combine and serve.
