12 leaves romaine lettuce , coarsely chopped
3 tomatoes , coarsely chopped
1 cucumber
6 radishes , quartered
4 scallions , sliced
2 cloves garlic , crushed
1 teaspoon salt
2 lemons , juiced
1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
6 tablespoons olive oil
A few fresh mint leaves
1 bunch purslane , chopped (optional)
2 tablespoons sumac
3 loaves pita bread


Peel the cucumber, then cut in half lengthwise. Seed it, and coarsely chop it.

In a bowl, combine the garlic, salt, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, 1 tablespoon of sumac and 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

In a separate bowl, combine the sumac with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Separate the pita bread in two thinner flat breads to obtain 6 thin flat breads total. Brush them with the sumac and olive oil, then cut them 1-inch squares. Toast them in an oven preheated at 400 F.

The pita bread can alternatively be fried. To do so, preheat 1 cup of oil in a skillet and fry the pita bread pieces until golden, for about 1 minute. Drain on plate lined with paper towel.

In a large bowl, combine all the vegetables and greens. Pour the dressing, and sprinkle with a little of sumac.

Add the toasted or fried pita bread right before serving, and toss well.

Serve immediately.
