Ingredients (serves 4)
2 wholemeal pocket pita bread
1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp sesame seeds
2 tsp black sesame seeds
Sea salt flakes
2 Lebanese cucumbers
200g punnet grape tomatoes
2 radishes, trimmed, thinly sliced
1 cup mint leaves
1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley
1 tbs lemon juice
Sumac, to sprinkle
- 1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place pita bread on an oven tray. Brush both sides with 1 tbs of the oil and sprinkle with combined sesame seeds. Sprinkle with salt flakes. Bake in oven, turning once during cooking, for 5-7 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Break up into large pieces.
- 2. Use a vegetable peeler to cut the cucumbers into ribbons. Arrange the cucumber, tomatoes, radish, mint, parsley and pita on a large serving platter. Combine the lemon juice and remaining oil in a small jug. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salad and sprinkle with sumac. Serve immediately.
Note: Sumac is the fruit of a shrub that grows in the Mediterranean and Middle East. The tangy, lemony spice is used as a rub for meats, sprinkled over salads or mixed with olive oil to make a simple dip.
Variation: Fattoush is a traditional Middle-Eastern salad. You can also add good-quality sheep's feta and kalamata olives, and for a slightly different flavour, try replacing parsley with coriander.
