INGREDIENTS
2 stale pita breads, broken into small pieces
4 juicy tomatoes, chopped
1 large cucumber, peeled (if necessary) and chopped
4-6 green onions, chopped
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS
Mix together all the veggies in a large bowl. Add all of the pita pieces. Toss veggies with olive oil
and lemon juice, stirring well to coat everything, especially the pita. Taste for seasoning and add
salt and pepper if desired. Allow the flavors to develop for about 30 minutes before serving. Toss
again before serving.
If you like garlic, add one or two grated cloves to the veggie mixture, making sure the salad is
stirred well to distribute the garlic evenly.
