Fattoush Salad Recipe



Fattoush
(Arabic , فتوش ), often pronounced "fadash", is a Lebanese salad made from several garden vegetables and toasted or fried pieces of pita bread. Fattoush salad allows cooks to use seasonal produce by mixing different vegetables and herbs according to taste, and also to make use of pitas that have gone stale. The vegetables are cut into relatively larges pieces compared to Tabbouleh which requires ingredients to be finely chopped. Sumac is usually used to give Fattoush its sour taste.

Recipe

2 cups Romain Lettuce finely chopped
1 cup red cabbage shredded
1/2 cup orange pepper diced
1/2 cup red pepper diced
1/2 cup green pepper diced
1 cup shopped cucumber
1/4 cup radish diced
1/2 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup carrot shredded
1/4 cup green onion chopped
1/4 cup red onion chopped
1/2 cup parsley chopped
1 tsp. dry mint
2 tsp. sumac
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 to 3 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup pita chips

Preparation

Chop up the first 12 ingredients and place in a large bowl. In a small bowl mix the mint, sumac, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Piece the toasted or fried pita chips into 1/2 inch bits. When ready to serve, mix all of the vegetables then add the dressing and mix. Top with pita chips.
