Jennifer Aniston salad – how to prepare it?

The next step is to chop vegetables, nuts and herbs. Dice fresh cucumbers and red onions. Chop pistachios, mint and parsley.
In a large bowl, mix the cooked semolina with the rinsed and drained chickpeas. Add the chopped vegetables and herbs and pistachios.
