Mediterranean Chopped Salad with Shrimp & Chickpeas

I was really craving a nice crispy salad, and found this one in Real Simple. I decided to give it a whirl...very refreshing!


1/2 head of Romaine lettuce, cut crosswise into thin strips (8 cups)
1 pound cooked peeled and deveined medium shrimp, cut in half crosswise
1/2 English cucumber, chopped
1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed, or a heaping 1/2 cup dried chickpeas, soaked and cooked
1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped
3/4 cup crumbled Feta (about 3 ounces)
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
2 cups pita chips, broken into pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Kosher salt and black pepper

In a large bowl, toss the lettuce, shrimp, cucumber, chickpeas, onion, feta, olives, and pita chips with oil, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and paper.
