¼ cup of Mint, fresh

¼ cup of Cilantro, fresh

2 cups of Garbanzo Beans

2 tbsp of Shallots, fresh minced

For the dressing: Whisk all the ingredients together. Notice the olfactory sensations that derive from the interplay of ginger and lemon, vinegar and cinnamon, and cumin and orange. Enjoy being in the present moment with these aromas.

For the salad: Toast the almonds. Chop the herbs. Rinse the garbanzos. Mince the shallot and garlic. Mix the salad ingredients together. Dream of your best life and realize it’s the one you’re living.

Mix the salad and dressing together in a large bowl.
