  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Combine the garlic, 1 tbs of the oil and half the sumac in a bowl. Brush both sides of pita bread evenly with oil mixture. Season with salt and pepper and place on a baking tray. Bake in oven, turning halfway through cooking, for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Set aside to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, combine onion, remaining oil and remaining sumac in a serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes to develop the flavours.

  3. Break pita bread into small pieces. Add pita bread, tomato, cucumber, mint and parsley to the onion mixture and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately.
