Ingredients

  • 2 regular pita breads, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 3 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt
  • 3 stalks celery, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, trimmed and leaves thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch watercress, trimmed
  • 6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread pita squares in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until they are nicely crisp, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar and olive oil, and season with salt.

  2. In a medium salad bowl, combine toasted pita bread, celery, and cucumber; add vinegar mixture, and toss well to combine. Just before serving, add mint and watercress; gently toss again. Sprinkle feta cheese over the top, and season with pepper.
