      This was a good, fresh tasting salad that was easy to make thanks Ev, and went well with our baked prawns and feta. I sprinkled some sumak over for an extra tangy finish.

      I really, really enjoyed this pita salad for lunch today. My pita breads were a lot larger and a bit thinner than some of the other pita breads I have purchased in the past. Therefore, I used about one pita and a quarter of a second one and this worked out well. Probably because of the thinner texture, mine were perfectly done after 15 minutes. I did not peel my cuke, other than that, I followed the recipe as posted. I would say this yields about 3-4 servings. This salad is very fresh and flavorful and I enjoyed the dressing and the fresh mint. I did use the optional sumac. This is going into my keeper file. Made for ZWT9.

      Very nice. Used only one pita, and omitted the mint (personal preference). Portions, even with less pita, were quite generous. Easy and tasty. Thanks!
