  • Summary

    So good, so fresh tasting as a main course salad and I would imagine it would work equally well as an over-the-top delicious wrap or pita filling.

    Ingredients

    • For Dressing:
    • 4 fresh basil leaves
    • tiny pinch freshly minced garlic (optional)
    • 3 Tbs. olive oil (or if you want it a little lighter, 2 Tbs. oil plus 1 Tbs. milk)
    • 1 Tbs. good red wine vinegar
    • 1 -2 Tbs. crumbled feta
    • 2 C. cut or sliced fresh tomatoes
    • ½ C. chopped English cucumber (about ½ large)
    • ¾ C. garbanzos (I used half a can)
    • 1 large handful fresh arugula or spinach
    • meat of 12 pistachios
    • salt and pepper
