Ingredients

    Chick pea salad:
    - 3 cans chick peas (or 4 cups dried & sprouted)
    - Sundried tomatoes (in oil, chopped)
    - 1 can black olives (sliced)
    - 1 jar artichokes (in oil)
    1 red onion (thinly sliced)
    -1 TBSP Olive Oil

    Pesto:

    - Basil (bunch)
    cup olive oil
    - 3 cloves garlic
    - Juice of a whole lemon

Directions

Mix all salad ingredients together.

To make pesto, blend the basil, 1/2 cup olive oil, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor or blender. I use a blender and it comes out fine, you just have to work it a little more.

Pesto could be made the night before. Mix the pesto into the salad and chill until ready to eat. I actually found that this tasted better the second and third day, once the flavors merged.
