Jennifer Aniston Salad

  • 1 cup bulgur finely cooked
  • 1 cucumber finely chopped
  • 1 15oz can of garbanzo beans drained & rinsed
  • 2 small handfuls of pistachios roughly chopped
  • 1 handful of fresh mint & parsley finely chopped
  • pinch of salt for the bulgur

Tahini Dressing

  • 2 tbsp tahini
