2 stale 7-inch pitas, split open
1 cucumber, quartered and thinly sliced
14 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1 small fennel bulb, cored and diced
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint
½ bunch roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Store-bought hummus (optional)


Preheat oven to 350° F. Place the pita rounds on a baking sheet and toast in oven until crisp and light brown, about 10 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces and set aside. Toss together the cucumber, tomatoes, scallions, fennel, celery, mint, and parsley. Cover and chill. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Combine the vegetables and dressing, and fold in the pits pieces. Serve with hummus, if desired.
