Method

  1. Using a pestle and mortar, crush the cumin and coriander seeds with a coarse grinding of pepper. Sit the feta on a plate, sprinkle over the spice mix – turning the feta so all sides are coated – and finish with a little olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Mix the salsa ingredients together and season. Mix together the salad leaves, parsley and mint.
  3. Brush the pittas with a little more oil and pop under a grill to heat through. Put a block of feta each on 2 plates, and serve with a spoonful of salsa, salad and pitta.
