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. Unlike tabbouleh fattoush is easier to prepare since cutting the vegetables doesn’t have to be so fine. Fattoush is made with romaine lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and toasted 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.
