Ingredients
1 small pitta bread
2 tablespoons olive oil
a pinch of sumac
1 Little Gem lettuce, chopped
1⁄2 cucumber, deseeded, roughly peeled

For Dressing:
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
a pinch of sumac
a pinch of allspice
a pinch of ground cinnamon
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

1. Toast the pitta in a toaster until just browned. Heat the oil in a small frying pan, then cut the pitta into roughly 2cm (3⁄4 inch) pieces, dust with sumac and fry in the oil, turning to coat for 2–3 minutes or until crisp.

2.Mix all the rest of the salad ingredients together in a large bowl and season well. Whisk together the dressing    ingredients and season.

3.Just before serving, toss the salad with the dressing and fold in the pitta pieces.

Tip:
Other veg can be used in this salad – try blanched broad beans and shaved fennel, with a touch of toasted cumin in the dressing.
