Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 Pinch(pn)  sumac, ground (optional)
1 Pinch(pn)  salt, to taste
4 Tablespoon(T)  lemon juice, freshly squeezed
6 Tablespoon(T)  fruity extra virgin olive oil
2   pita breads, split open
1 Tablespoon(T)  mint, dried
1 Bunch(bn)  fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
1   green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
4   scallions, finely chopped
2   tomatoes, halved, seeded and diced
6   radishes, halved and cut into thin half moon shapes
2 Bunch(bn)  romaine lettuce, outer leaves removed and inner leaves torn into bite sized pieces
1   cucumber


Halve the cucumber and use a teaspoon to scoop out the seeds. Chop each half into bite sized pieces. Put in a strainer resting in the sink, sprinkle with salt, and let drain for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler to high. To make the dressing, mix the oil, lemon juice and salt to taste together in a serving bowl. Add the sumac, if using, then set aside. Rinse the cucumber well to remove the salt, then pat dry. Add to the bowl with the dressing along with the torn lettuce leaves, radishes, tomatoes, scallions, green bell pepper and herbs and toss together. Toast the pita bread under the broiler on both sides until crisp and light brown. Tear the toast into bite sized pieces, add to the salad while still hot, and toss together. Serve immediately.

Additional notes

Tip: The vegetables can be tossed in the salad dressing several hours in advance, covered and refrigerated, but it is best to add the bread just before serving.
