If necessary, make the pesto: remove the basil leaves from their stems. Combine the basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, grated parmesan, and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth, drizzling the olive oil in as you go - approximately 40 minutes.
Coarsely chop the red onion, large enough for people who don't like it to pick it out.
Stir the lime juice into the pesto. Mix the chickpeas, onion, feta, and limed pesto in a large bowl.
