Fattoush Salad 2

Fattoush Salad (V)

I talked about how I discovered tabbouleh salad when I started living in Cyprus in a previous post. Fattoush was another salad I discovered at the same time. Fattoush is made of romaine lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and pita bread. It has a signature herb added to the dressing, called sumac.

Fattoush didn’t grown on me as much as tabbouleh which is my favourite salad. But it’s the best companion to the tabbouleh when I’m making Lebanese meze or Lebanese bowl. Together with hummus, baba ganoush, falafel balls, pita bread, tahini sauce and tahini and carob molasses makes a meal that I can never get tired of.

For the salad:

  • Cut romaine lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, radishes, parsley and mint in small pieces. Put them in a large bowl.
