Recipe: Fattoush Salad

I love Middle Eastern Food! It has so much flavor and I just can't get enough!

One of my favorite dishes is a Fattoush Salad. So rich in flavor and with the crisp pita bread, it's actually very filling.

Spices: Zatar and Sumac are great middle eastern spices. Zatar primarily consists of oregano, dried mint, etc... while Sumac is a lemony, bold red spice. Excellent addition to the salad. Can be purchased at any international aisle in a grocery store. I would say that these are vital ingredients that should be purchased to make this salad what it is.


Serving Size: 4

1 large romaine lettuce, chopped
2 tomatos, diced
1 english cucumber, diced
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1 tbs mint, chopped
3 radishes, sliced thin
1 small green pepper, diced
1/2 tbs zatar
1/2 tbs sumac
1/2 tbs salt
1 large pita bread sliced

Add all the ingredients (sans pita bread) together and mix.


3 tbs fine olive oil
1.5 tbs red wine vinegar
1/2 lemon juice
3 garlic cloves smashed with a dash salt
1 tsp zatar
1 tsp sumac

Mix all the dressing ingredients and whisk. Put in the fridge. 15 minutes before serving add the dressing and toss.


Place the chopped pita bread on a baking tray. Brush on some of the mixed dressing and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Top the pita bread on the salad. Serve immediately.
