How to Make Turkish Green Salad with Pomegranate Dressing

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Cut the pide or pita bread into 1-3 inch squares and spread these out on a baking tray.
  2. Pour a little oil over them, then sprinkle with sumac and toss so they’re lightly coated. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp and slightly brown. Leave to cool.
  3. Place the lettuce, chopped herbs, cucumber, tomatoes and spring onions in a bowl. Scatter the radish slices and pomegranate seeds over the top.
  4. Make the dressing by whisking the ingredients together until smooth. Then add salt to taste. Many people like this dressing quite tart but play with the flavors to suit your taste.
  5. To serve, simply pour about half the dressing on the salad, add the pide (or pita) croutons and toss everything together. Serve the remaining dressing in a bowl to accompany the salad.
