Mediterranean Fattoush Salad with Homemade Pita Chips
(Serves 4-6)

The instructions for this recipe begin with the pita chips, which Ronit blends with Zahtar spice blend for authentic eastern Mediterranean flavor.

2 pita breads
2 Tbs. water
3/4 tsp. salt, divided
2 1/2 Tbs. Whole Spice Zahtar spice blend, divided
1/2 tsp. ground sumac
6 Tbs. olive oil, divided
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
2 Persian cucumbers
2 Roma tomatoes
1/2 small red onion
10 Kalamata olives, pitted
3 Tbs. crumbled feta cheese

For the pita chips with Zahtar blend:
Preheat oven to 350. Slice the pita into bite-sized squares and place them in a small salad bowl. 
Drizzle with water and 3 Tbs. olive oil; season with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 Tbs. Zahtar blend. With your hand, gently mix to make sure all pita bites are coated with spices. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

For the salad:
Chop all the vegetables and place them in a salad bowl with the olives. Mix together 3 Tbs. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, sumac, lemon juice and 1 1/2 Tbs. Zahtar Blend, and toss with the vegetables. Just before serving, top with pita chips and feta. Enjoy!
