Mediterranean Salad

This is one of the most satisfying salads I've ever made. There's plenty of heart healthy fats like cold pressed olive oil and pistachio nuts. It's got good protein from the chick peas and the flavors of the herbs really give this salad a burst of flavor. 

The instructions are pretty basic: get your sharpest knife, chop everything up as small as possible and mix it all together. That's it! It lasts up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
