3 (7-inch) pitas
4 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce
2 cups diced English cucumber
2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
2/3 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Arrange pitas on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 14 minutes or until dry and crisp, turning after 7 minutes. Set aside; cool.

3. Combine lettuce and next 7 ingredients (through parsley) in a large bowl. Break pitas into bite-sized pieces. Add pitas to salad; toss gently to combine.
