Using canned Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained made this salad so quick and easy. I added the dressing to the beans and tomatoes first to give them more flavor. Cumin flavor was just enough with 1/2 tsp ground cumin. I omitted the parsley.
Toasted Pita & Bean Salad
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
Beans add protein to this tasty riff on the classic Middle Eastern salad fattoush, made with lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, mint and pita bread.

Really loved this recipe, although I omitted the lettuce and made it more of a dip with the pitas so I could eat it as left overs. Also did not mix the pita crisps with it until I was ready to serve. Will definitely make this again.
This salad was good, but way too much cumin! I would use much less cumin and less mint. The lemon juice and mint were a refreshing taste. Not sure if I would make this again
I really enjoyed this salad. I think I would omit the cumin next time. I felt like I was eating a taco salad with the cumin and pinto beans but then it had a middle eastern feel when you tasted the mint, feta and cucumber. A bit to much going on.
