The pita crisps and sumac spice are what make this iconic dish so special. The other elements — the crisp, fresh, bright herbs and veggies — are simply the cherry tomatoes on top 😉

  • 1Make dressing by placing all ingredients together in a screw top jar, shaking vigorously to combine. Set aside until required.
  • 2In a large bowl mix together all the salad ingredients, until well combined. (If preparing in advance, do not add pita crisps yet, as they’ll go soggy – wait until just before salad is being served to mix in the crisps!)
