Fattoush Salad
  • Salad:
  • 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)
  • Dressing:
  • 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
  1. Mix & serve!
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.
