A really nice blend of flavors comes together in this recipe. I made it as a main dish for a summer night and I feel it's probably better suited as a side salad. I made half the recipe and there's no way it would feed 4 as suggested.
This is freshness on a plate! I love the lemon vinaigrette--I was worried it would be too tart, but with the mix of summer veggies & salty feta, it's just right. I only lightly toasted my pitas and rubbed them w/ a garlic clove half before breaking them apart. I used the herbs called for and enjoyed a perfect balance of flavors.
Tried this last night. I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted basil for the mint. I found the salad was not very flavorful, and my boyfriend hated the pita in the salad--he didn't feel the texture went well with the rest of the salad. I won't make this again.
Delicious, easy, flavorful summer supper! This was a nice change from your usual summer salad. I made a few changes: substituted basil for parsley (had a bunch on hand), used regular vine tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes, and omitted the cucumbers for personal preference. The mint really paired well with the lemon juice in the dressing--which was a nice vinaigrette. The pita chips were a nice change from regular croutons; I would definitely do this salad again!
