    Directions

    To make the lemon pita chips: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Brush the pita bread with extra-virgin olive oil and the lemon juice. Sprinkle with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and piment d'espelette. Bake in the oven for about 5 minutes, until golden and crispy.

    To make the lemon dressing: In a jar combine extra-virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Shake to emulsify.

    To make the salad: Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan over medium-high heat for a few minutes until they become golden and fragrant. Place the julienned mint leaves in a bowl with the blueberries, pomegranate seeds and mshalale cheese. Crumble the lemon pita over the salad and drizzle with the lemon dressing. Sprinkle with a handful of toasted pumpkin seeds; mix to combine.

      I made this for my relatives...there was nothing left! They raved about it. It's light with many textures and very delicious. The colors are wonderful and makes a great side dish.

      Excellent recipe. I had a chunk of feta cheese in the fridge, so that is what I used. Next time I will try to find the mshalale cheese. Thinking in the summer when pomegranates are not in season I will try the recipe with currents. It really doesn't take that long to pick a cup of seeds out of the pomegranate. I would make this recipe for a party because it is delicious and not typical boring party salad.

      Prep time me was 7 days. The pomegranate seeds had 2 do by hand and
      the cheese was very hard 2 find. But, the flavor and the texture made it all
      worth the time and effort. It's the most delicious trail mix I've ever had.. er I
      meant salad. Thx Nadia!
