Toasted Pita and Sesame Seed Salad

Toasted Pita and Sesame Seed Salad

This is one of my favorite light, but substantial spring salads. It contains two of my favorite things: toasted things and dried fruit.

I might start going to the Dried Fruit Association’s yearly convention like a cosplayer. I’ll dress up like a California Raisin and get my picture taken with the titans of the dried fruit industry. The rest of the world may still call them prunes, but I was really into that “Plum Amazin’” rebranding. I might have been the only one. 


1 Pita toasted until crispy like a chip

2 hearts of romaine, chopped

1 large cucumber, sliced

4 radishes, sliced

½ C pitted green olives

2 scallions, diced

½ C toasted sunflower seeds (10 mins at 350F)

¼ C golden raisins

4 dried figs, diced

Juice of 1 lemon

Splash of good olive oil

Salt and pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
