1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Separate each pita into two layers and cut into 2-incy strips. Place pita strips on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly crisp. When the strips hae cooled, break them into small bite-sized pieces. Set aside. You can chop the vegetables while the pita bakes.
2. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, cucumber, onion, tomatoes, chickpeas, parsley, and mint.
3. Just before serving, prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, and salt. Pour dressing over lettuce and toss. Gently mix in toasted pita and feta cheese, if using, and serve immediately.
