Fattoush

2 6-in whole wheat pitas, split
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 1/4 tsp ground sumac, divided
1/4 c lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 large head of romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped
2 large tomatoes diced
2 small salad cucumbers or 1 large cucumber, seeded and diced
1/2 c thinly sliced red onion
1/3 c thinly sliced fresh mint

1.  Preheat oven to 350deg F
2.  Place pita halves rough-side up on a large baking sheet.  Brush with 1 tbsp oil and sprinkle with 1 tsp sumac.  Bake until the pita halves are golden and crisp, about 15 minutes.  When cool, break into bite-size pieces.
3.  Whisk lemon juice, salt, pepper and the remaining 2 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp sumac in a large bowl.  Add lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, mint and the pita pieces; toss to coat.  Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
