Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients and set aside. Next, line four shallow salad bowls with butter lettuce leaves. 
Coat a large cast iron or nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over high heat. Add pita wedges and toast, turning with tongs until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Reserve for tossing.

Place remaining ingredients in a large bowl and toss with dressing until well coated. Add toasted pita wedges and toss lightly. Divide equally among salad bowls. Serve immediately.
