For the salad 4 cups romaine lettuce coarsely chopped 2 cups tomatoes cut into 1 inch pieces 2 cups Persian cucumbers thinly sliced 1/2 cup radishes thinly sliced 1/4 cup red onion thinly sliced 1 cup parsley leaves 1/2 cup mint leaves 1 1/2 cups pita chips For the dressing 1/2 cup olive oil 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced 1 teaspoon sumac 3/4 teaspoon salt
Place the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, red onion, parsley leaves and mint leaves in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Add the pita chips and toss one more time. Serve immediately.
Try using a mandoline to thinly slice the radishes, red onion and cucumbers.
I prefer to use small Persian style cucumbers for this recipe.
I like to leave my parsley and mint leaves whole because they really add a lot of fresh flavor to the salad, but it's also fine to mince them and add them to the dressing.
