Why I Love This Recipe

One of my favorite salads on the planet is a Lebanese salad called fattoush. The dressing is so tangy and flavorful and the toasted pita gives it a great crunch.

This serves two as a meal (with a protein), but if you plan on making it as a salad/first course you will probably want to half it.

Ingredients You'll Need

1.5 cups lettuce or greens (I used romaine but any mixture of romaine/purslane/arugula/etc. will work).
1 cucumber, sliced or cut into chunks
1 tomato sliced
3 Tbsp. fresh parsley (leaves only)
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 bunch of green onions, sliced
1 pita, sliced through the pocket, torn into pieces and toasted (I do this at 375 for 8-10 minutes or so)
2 grilled chicken breast halves (if desired)

Juice of one lemon
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. sumac
2 cloves garlic, crushed (I usually add some kosher salt and a drizzle of olive oil to the top and then smash)
1/4 tsp salt or to taste
pepper to taste


Mix & serve!
