Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet heat 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the pita pieces. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until toasted, stirring occasionally. Remove pita pieces to paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil and remaining pita pieces.

  • For dressing, in an extra-large bowl whisk together the next six ingredients (through pepper).

  • Add the next five ingredients (through mint) to dressing in the bowl; toss to coat. Add pita pieces and cheese; toss to mix.


If you prefer to bake the pita pieces, preheat oven to 350°F. Omit vegetable oil. Lightly coat torn pita bread with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange pita pieces in an even layer in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Continue with Step 2 as directed.
