Jillian Michael's Fattoush Salad

Tonight it is hot and I worked all day in my new classroom so I don't feel real motivated to put on a grand dinner.  This salad is light and healthy.  Jillian Michael submitted this recipe as a good meal when you want to eat right. 

1-1/4 cup garbanzo beans
3/4 cup cucumber, 1/2 dice
1-1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
3 oz feta cheese
1/4 cup pink radishes, shaved
3/4 cup toasted whole-wheat pita
1 lb-2 oz baby romaine, washed and chopped
Edible flowers (optional)
For Dressing
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp fresh garlic
2 tsp water
1/4 oz olive oil
To make vinaigrette, combine vinegar, thyme, Dijon mustard, water, and garlic in a stainless steel bowl. Slowly stream in the olive oil while whisking to create emulsion. Then, in a large salad bowl, gently toss all the ingredients (excluding feta cheese) along with the dressing to coat evenly. Crumble feta cheese over the top of each plate. Drizzle with vinaigrette and garnish with edible flowers.
