Crunchy cucumbers, ripe tomatoes, and toasted pita bread are the foundation of this bright salad with Middle Eastern roots. Toss with a lemony dressing, finish with a crumble of feta cheese, and be prepared to want it on repeat.
Lightly brush the pita bread with olive oil and sprinkle a pinch of salt over the surface. Put in a toaster oven until lightly browned and mostly crispy or a 350 degree F oven for about 10 minutes. Let cool.
Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, garlic, salt, and several turns with a pepper grinder.
Put the lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber in a large bowl. Once the pita has cooled, break it up into large bite-size pieces and add to the salad. Drizzle on most of the dressing and toss well. If serving this as a main dish, add the chicken or chick peas and toss again. Taste and add more dressing if needed. Scatter the feta over the top.
