    it is much easier to cut the pita bread before baking it, you get nice square litle chips!  -  04 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I had many rave reviews from my dinner guests. I used zatar, which has sumac in it, instead of the straight sumac. Will definitely make again!  -  25 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great, thanks! Just like how my family makes it, I like the addition of olives, I normally dont use it.  -  24 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
