Arugula, 1 bag (can also use Kale)

1-2 Lemons

15 Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half or quartered if big

1 Cucumber or 2 -3 Persian cucumbers

1/3 Purple onion, diced small

2 pita breads, cut into 3/4 inch pieces

2 - 3 Tbsp. SPICE + LEAF Ground Sumac (Available on Amazon)

3- 4 Tbsp. SPICE+ LEAF Authentic Za’atar (Available on Amazon) 

Sea Salt


Cooking Instructions for Pita Chips: 

  1. Cut pita bread into medium size cubes. 

  2. In a bowl, mix cubed pita with approx. 2 - 3 tbsp. olive oil. Mix well. Add most of za’atar and sumac so they are coated with olive oil and spice blend is evenly distributed among all of the pita pieces. (Save a 1T bsp. of sumac and za’atar for tossing directly into salad).

  3. Place on a pan, spread out evenly for cooking and place in the oven for 7 - 10 minutes at 400 degrees. 

  4. Cook until dried up and toasty brown. Set aside and add to salad after it has been dressed.
