Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together all salad ingredients except the pita chips.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients.

  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.

  4. Enjoy the pita chips on the side or break into bits and sprinkle over your salad for added crunch.

  5. DIY: Try making your own pita chips! Use 1 whole wheat pita (6 1/2" diameter or about 2 oz.). Cut the pita in half and cut then each half into quarters. Separate each piece for a total of 16. Place on rimmed baking sheet and spray lightly with olive oil nonstick spray. Turn over each piece and spray the other side. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until crisp.
