Author Notes

While we love stuffing them, we're thrilled to cut up our pitas for this easy and refreshing Middle Eastern salad. A combination of juicy tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers, sliced pita and peppers tossed with mint, parsley and a lemon dressing, this pita salad is both fresh and fantastic. —bitememore
