Delicious rustic Lebanese bread salad
Fattoush is a famous Lebanese salad, made with vegetables and crispy fried pita bread. This is a Middle Eastern classic that is a light, healthy and oh so delicious. Fattoush is easy to prepare, with fresh ingredients that energize rather than leave you feeling heavy. Besides a delightful mix of herbs, tomatoes, cucumber, and pita, this Lebanese salad is sprinkled with the traditional flavoring of sumac, which adds an extra special kick.
NOT “just another mixed salad”
What gives this salad its character is the sumac dressing, which sets it apart in the world of mixed greens, and makes it just plain yummy. In fact, the secret of this salad’s never-ending freshness is in the combination of crispy bread and sumac dressing. The toasted flatbread soaks up the dressing and the olive oil prevents it from getting soggy. This is why fattoush salad is so popular in the Middle East.
Made for any season
Fattoush is particularly good in hot weather, and that’s why many people call it the “Lebanese summer salad”. It’s true that salads are a refreshing summer dish, but we recommend trying it throughout the year, because no season is a bad season for Fattoush!
We’re going to let you in on a little secret, other than sumac some Lebanese add a few drops of pomegranate molasses to add a sweet kick to it!
