Bread Salad with Mint and Tomatoes

Yield 8 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
This fresh, simple salad highlights popular Greek ingredients such as tomatoes, cucumber, pita bread, and mint, all coated in a pleasantly tart lemon juice dressing. Serve immediately to prevent the bread from becoming too soggy.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups chopped tomato (about 3 medium)
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions (about 3)
