    Break pitta bread into small pieces and toss through salad. Top with the labne and eggs. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and sprinkle with extra sumac.

Notes

Iceberg lettuce consists of layers of tightly packed, crisp, juicy leaves. Really versatile and perfect for filling and wrapping, remove the outer leaves and store wrapped in paper towel in a plastic bag in the crisper of your fridge.
