Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas - $0.36
  • 1 packed cup chopped lettuce - $0.17
  • ½ cucumber diced - $0.31
  • 2 medium tomatoes diced - $0.28
  • ½ a small red onion diced - $0.16
  • 3 tablespoons chopped black olives like kalamata or other Mediterranean variety - $0.29
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil - $0.10
  • 2 tablespoons red or white wine vinegar - $0.18
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano - $0.05
  • ½ teaspoon salt - $0.01
  • Pepper to taste - $0.02
  • 4 - 5 pita breads - $0.95*

Instructions

  • Put the chickpeas in a bowl and smash them up a bit with a fork. Add the remaining vegetables.
  • In a small bowl or mason jar combine the oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Dress the salad and toss. You can either slice open and stuff the pita bread or spoon the salad down the middle and fold it up (it’s easier that way).
  • *My pita bread was homemade, that’s why it’s so cheap. You can use store-bought if you prefer.
