  • 5 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced (about ¼ cup juice)
  • 1 tablespoon ground sumac
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • 1 head romaine lettuce cut into 1 inch ribbons
  • 3 medium tomatoes Roma preferred cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 3 small cucumber Persian preferred peeled and cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into 1 inch strips
  • ½ small red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cups arugula salad greens
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley rough chop
  • 10 sprigs of mint leaves shredded


  • Cut or tear the pita into large pieces. Spread on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Place under the broiler until crisp and browned, turning them over once. Set aside. When cool, break into smaller pieces.
  • Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and sumac (See Note 1). Set aside.
  • Place all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss to mix together. Pour salad dressing over salad, add toasted pita and toss to mix just before serving.



  1. I use an immersion blender to whip the dressing together.
