SAM_1939SAM_1951SAM_1956An amazing tasting salad with middle eastern flavors and interesting textures.  The only hard part is the dressing and even that is easy.

You want to toast the pita quite well so it doesn’t get too soggy in the salad, I’ve seen cracker bread used too but I love the texture of the chewy Pita Bread.

 

  1. Soak Sumac in water for at least 15 minutes (you will add it to the dressing wet)
  2. Mix all ingredients for dressing starting with Olive Oil & Vinegar add wet Sumac last
  3. Set dressing aside
  4. Toast Pine Nuts in a dry pan
  5. Toast Pita bread in a pan until brown and toasted or in the oven at 350
  6. Chop Lettuce, Cucumbers, Tomatoes & Radishes
  7. Chop Green Onions
  8. Finely chop Parsley & Mint
  9. Tear Pita bread into bite size pieces
  10. Toss everything together and sprinkle with Pomegranate seeds
  11. Sprinkle with more Sumac if you like
