Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Salad tongs or spatula
  • Knife
  • Baking Sheet
  • Small bowl (for dressing)
  • Whisk or fork

Ingredients
  

For the Salad:

  • 4 large pita bread rounds
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup sliced radishes optional
  • 1/4 cup sliced green bell pepper optional

For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon sumac optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Place the pita bread rounds on a baking sheet and brush them with a little olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven for about 5-7 minutes until they become crispy. Remove from the oven and let them cool.
  • Break the cooled pita bread into small pieces or cut them into bite-sized squares.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped romaine lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, parsley, mint leaves, sliced radishes, and sliced green bell pepper (if using).
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, sumac (if using), salt, and pepper to make the dressing.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients in the mixing bowl and toss gently to coat the salad with the dressing.
  • Add the broken or cut pita bread pieces to the salad and toss again.
  • Let the Fattoush salad sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Serve the Fattoush salad immediately as a refreshing and tangy appetizer or side dish.
