I can think of carob, which already grows in the area.

What other kinds would be a good source of nutrition and thrive in a Mediterranean climate with little annual rainfall?

Other tree suggestions welcome, leguminous or not!

I can't think of any leguminous trees which produce edible fruit. Olives are the obvious trees for a dry Mediterranean climate. Then the citrines and Almonds Wallnuts and sweet chestnuts. But if you are emphasizing dryness what about coming down to ground level with pineapples?
