"Fattush" is an Eastern Mediterranean salad made from vegetables like cucumber, radishes, tomatoes plus toasted or fried pieces of pita bread. The vegetables are cut into relatively large pieces compared with Tabbouleh where ingredients are finely chopped.
All purpose Greek seasoning is a ground specialty seasoning blend found where the herbs and spices are located in the grocery store.
