Learn how to make great Lebanese Fattoush, one of the most famous salad dishes in Lebanon.

Ingredients (serves 6)
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • 2 pieces Lebanese bread, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 500g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved lengthways, deseeded, chopped
  • 1 red capsicum, chopped
