Salad Ingredients

  • 2 pita breads cut into small squares and baked in the oven (you may use tortilla instead)
  • 3 leaves Romaine lettuce, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup parsley, thinly chopped
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and thinly-sliced
  • 1 medium tomato cut into small pieces
  • 1 small green bell pepper cut into small pieces
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup purslane leaves (optional)
  • 1/4 cup loosely chopped mint leaves
  • 2 green onions, thinly-sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, peeled and thinly-sliced

Lemon Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 tsp ground sumac mixed in 3 tablespoons of cold water
  • 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the Pita chips: Cut the pita loaf into small squares using kitchen scissors or a knife, place in a sheet pan, and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 350F or until toasted.
  • Make the salad: Combine all Fattoush ingredients in a large mixing bowl (excluding the pita chips).
  • Mix the sumac with 3 tablespoons of cold water than sprinkle over the salad.
  • Prepare the dressing and serve: Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Upon serving drizzle over the Fattoush then toss until evenly combined. Pita chips are served in a separate bowl on the side. You may garnish your Fattoush plate with the desired amount of Pita chips.
