Recipe Details


Classic Greek salad (cucumber, tomato, and red onion) meets nachos in this clever mashup. We swap tortillas for toasted pita chips, then layer on the veggies, along with harissa-roasted chickpeas for spice and heartiness. Instead of sour cream, a yogurt, feta, and dill sauce is drizzled over top.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse all produce. Stack pita breads and cut into wedges (about 6 each). Drain and rinse chickpeas; measure out 1 cup and pat dry with paper towel for the next step (save remainder for another recipe). Halve lemon. Peel onion, cut 1 half into small dice, and place in a small bowl with juice of ½ lemon. Set aside to marinate until Step 5. Line 2 baking sheets with foil.

  2. Bake chickpeas and pitas

    Bake chickpeas and pitas

    On 1 prepared sheet, toss chickpeas with harissa (it's spicy, so feel free to use less) and, using a fork or potato masher, mash slightly. Drizzle over olive oil and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. On other prepared sheet, toss pita wedges with 1 tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt. Arrange in a single layer and bake until chickpeas are crisp and pita are golden, 8-10 minutes.

  3. Make feta-yogurt sauce

    While chickpeas and pitas bake, pick dill leaves and roughly chop half (reserve remainder for garnish), discarding stems. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, chopped dill, juice of remaining lemon (or start with a little, taste, and add more as desired), ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired to combine. Add half of feta. Using a fork, mash to combine until sauce is smooth.

  4. Prepare vegetables
