Fattoush is a Middle eastern salad made from mixed garden veggies fried / toasted pieces of pita bread. And this recipe is adapted from MIDDLE EASTERN COOKBOOK by Maria Khalife.
2 small cucumbers-peeled and diced,
4 sliced radishes ,
2 medium tomatoes,
1/2 romaine lettuce,
4 spring onions-cut into small pieces,
1/2 cup chopped parsley,
3 tbsp chopped mint,
1 pitta bread,
1/2 chopped green pepper,
1 clove of garlic,
1/2 tsp salt,
1/3 cup lemon juice and
1/2 cup olive oil.
Usually the pitta bread is deep fried till brown and crisp, but as I wanted it to be on the healthier side, I toasted the pitta bread in the oven until brown and crispy. Break this toasted pitta bread into small pieces and keep aside. Shred the lettuce into small pieces. In a big bowl, mix in the cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, spring onion, pepper, parsley and mint.
Make the dressing by crushing the garlic in a small bowl with the salt. Stir in the lemon juice and olive oil. Drizzle this dressing over the salad just beforee serving oil and also add the toasted pitta bread and toss well. Serve.
Tips:Usually sumac is also added to fattoush. But I had to skip it because I didn't have it :(
