Fattoush Salad Recipe….Salad with Pita Bread Croutons

Recipe, Salad, Vegetarian

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fattoush is a very common Mediterranean salad made with fresh toasted, baked or fried pita chips, romaine lettuce and “tons” of vegetables. The vegetables in this salad are cut into relatively larger pieces compared to other traditional salad which has more finely chopped veggies. The key ingredient with Fattoush is Sumac. tabbouleh which requires ingredients to be finely chopped. Sumac gives the salad a tangy, lemon flavor. I use baked pita chips for a healthier version.

Ingredients

  • 1 romaine lettuce heart, chopped (~10 leaves or 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped (~3 pieces)
  • 1/2 cup radishes, chopped (~4-5 pieces)
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 3 medium size tomatoes, chopped (remove seeds)
  • 1 cup pita chips

Dressing

  • 2 teaspoons sumac
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup  extra virgin olive oil
