Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Open a pita and cut in half. Rub the surface with a clove of garlic, and drizzle with olive oil. Give a sprinkle of salt. Bake for 10 minutes, or until medium brown.

Put the parsley, mint leaves, celery leaves, and oregano in a bowl. In another bowl, add the tomato, cucumber, and onion. Add the 4 tablespoons oil, salt to taste, and lemon juice. Toss together to coat evenly.

Just before serving, add the herbs to the vegetable bowl with the chickpeas. Toss together, taste and adjust seasoning. Add the toasted pita bread that you crunch into your hands to make smaller pieces, and serve.

    I made this yesterday with grilled pork chops and my 22 year old son and I just kept eating it. He just kept going back for more. I would eat this by itself and am having the tiny bit left from last night today at lunch. Absolutely delicious. I've sent this recipe to several friends and family. Love Chuck and his energy and passion for cooking.

    I made this salad right after the show and LOVED IT! Chuck is so enthusiastic about what he cooks and is very inspiring. The herbs give a wonderful earthy, refreshing taste. I had it with grilled chicken, nothing else and it was delicious! I highly recommend it.
