A light, refreshing Lebonese salad. Don't be fooled by the long list of ingredients - this is super easy and comes together in a snap! It's wonderful in the summertime and makes a great addition to a BBQ menu.

Really Nice Salad! I found that this salad had a nice flavor balance. I left out the tomato as I can't eat them raw, and only used 2 cloves of garlic. I still found it to be quite garlicy which is fine for me as I love garlic, I think 1 clove would work well if you are more sensitive to garlic. I also used a thick pita so it was more like chopped pita than pita crumbles. I know for next time! Over all a great salad that I will be making again, thanks for sharing!
