Delicious Green Salad

2-3 pitas cut into bite size pieces
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
3 tomatoes
1 large red pepper diced
1 cucumber peeled and chopped
4 scallions thinly sliced
Parsley flakes
¼ cup chopped fresh mint-optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Transfer pitas to baking sheet: bake until crisp, about 12 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk olive oil, lemon and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cucumbers, tomatoes, red pepper, scallions, parsley flakes, mint and cooled pitas. Add lettuce and toss. Serve. (This is for a small salad, double if you want a large serving salad). We are going to call this our christmas green salad, very pretty red and green mixture!
