To Make The Quick Israeli Salad:

  2. Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 2 days.

To Make The Israeli Salad Wrap:

  1. Spread a few spoonfuls of hummus evenly on a piece of pita bread.  Top with a few spoonfuls of the Israeli Salad and any other optional add-ins.  Roll the pita into a wrap and serve immediately.

To Make The Israeli Hummus Dip Wrap:

  1. Spread a batch of hummus out evenly on a serving plate.  Sprinkle evenly with the Israeli Salad, roasted chickpeas and feta.  Serve immediately with pita chips.


*I used roasted za’atar pita chips in the photo above.  To make them, heat your oven to 400°F.  Rinse and drain a can of chickpeas.  Then add them to a bowl along with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons za’atar, and toss to combine.  Spread the chickpeas out in an even layer on a baking sheet, and season with salt and pepper.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chickpeas crisp up a bit.  Remove and let cool to room temperature, then serve.
