Toasted Pita & Bean Salad

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (72 votes)

Beans add protein to this tasty riff on the classic Middle Eastern salad fattoush, made with lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, mint and pita bread.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Delish! The beans complimented the greens very well, better than I thought. I loved the dressing too. Definately will make it again, without the mint though. "

Easy to adjust for kids

I loved the raw garlic and cumin flavor but I knew it would be too strong for my slightly finicky 7 year old so I mixed up the garlic, lemon, salt, cumin and olive oil dressing separately from the rest of the salad ingredients. The little one could then just put a simple oil and vinegar on his and everyone had a very quick healthy family lunch.

Deliciouse Helathy Salad!

This salad tasted fresh and delicious. I made as directed, only I used 1 tsp of powdered cumin (all i had on hand). At first I wasn't sure about adding the pita chips to the salad because I thought they would get soggy, but they didn't! It was nice to have all the different textures come together and make for a great salad.

Very tasty and easy to make.

Very good recipe. I followed the recipe but used only 1 TB of cumin. I baked my own beans and added some walnuts. Also, we had the lettuce separately.

Interesting flavours

I omitted the mint and subbed Red Kidney beans for the Pinto Beans. I will try it again and maybe add the mint just to see if it offsets the overpowering cumin. Else I would suggest going a little lighter on the cumin. 1 tbsp. Also I would like to try it with maybe a Cilantro Vinaigrette instead of the sauce here.
