1/2 cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon ground sumac

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/3 cup olive oil

Salad

3 cups shredded romaine

1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Cut each pita into 8 wedges; split each piece in half. Place pita wedges into bowl. Add butter spread; toss to coat. Place pita wedges in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Cool.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine lemon juice, 1 teaspoon ground sumac, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper in bowl; mix well. Add olive oil slowly while whisking to combine. (Dressing may separate. Stir to combine before adding to salad.)

  4. STEP 4

    Place all salad ingredients into bowl. Add cooled pita chips and enough dressing to generously coat; let stand at least 10 minutes. Refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving.

  5. STEP 5

    Sprinkle salad with additional ground sumac before serving, if desired.

Tip #1

Ground sumac is a traditional Middle Eastern spice with a fruit-tart flavor and a deep red color. It is delicious sprinkled over any food that would typically be served with a squeeze of lemon. Try it sprinkled on hummus for a new flavor twist. Check the ethnic section of your grocery store, specialty spice shops or online to find this spice.
