Fattoush is a traditional Middle Eastern salad made with flatbread and vegetables.
First make the dressing. In a blender or food processor, combine the lemon juice, garlic, cumin, sumac (or lemon zest), salt, red pepper flakes and black pepper. Process until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil in a thin stream until emulsified. Set aside.
Next prepare the pita croutons. Heat the oven to 400 F. Tear each pita into half-inch pieces (or you may cut each into 8 triangles). Spread the pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until crisp and lightly golden, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Now you're ready to assemble the salad. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell pepper, green onions, mint and parsley and toss. Add the dressing and toss lightly to coat evenly. Divide the salad among individual plates. Top with the croutons.
