My Favorite Mediterranean Salad is so good. A delicious combination of vegetables, chickpeas, olives, artichoke hearts, fresh basil, pumpkin seeds, and tangy vinaigrette.
Rinse your greens. I used green and red leaf lettuces and baby spinach.
Shred the carrot and beet. Drain the chickpeas. Chop the broccoli.
Chop the tomato, cucumber, and green onion. Rinse and pat dry the basil leaves.
Drain your artichoke hearts and kalamata olives.
Place the vegetables, olives, artichoke hearts, pumpkin seeds in your favorite bowl.
