Fattoush has been a long time favorite of
mine especially in the Summer months. When it’s hot I just love eating small
and cool meals. Forget all that heavy rice and large dinners. This colorful Lebanese
salad is made up of the perfect fresh ingredients and topped with a light
dressing that I use for almost all my salads, I love it that much.
1 head lettuce, washed and chopped
1 bunch of parsley, chopped
1/2 bunch mint leaves, washed and drained
3 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
7 radishes, peeled and sliced
2 shallots, diced
3 garlic cloves, smashed
1/2 cup lemon juice
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons sumac
Salt to taste
2 pita breads, cut up and fried
In a large salad bowl add lettuce, parsley,
mint, cucumbers, radishes and shallots.
In a small bowl add garlic, lemon juice,
olive oil, paprika, salt and sumac, mix well and pour over salad, mixing well.
Top with fried pita bread and serve.
Yields: 6 servings
