Fattoush is a Levantine bread salad made from toasted or fried pieces of pita bread, vegetables and herbs. It is popular in Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, and other Arab countries.
The word fattoush comes from the Arabic word fatt, which means to break up or crumble. The salad is typically made with stale pita bread that is cut or torn into small pieces and then fried or toasted.
The bread is the key ingredient in the salad and is what gives it its name. Other ingredients typically include tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, mint, parsley, and sumac. The salad is usually dressed with a vinegar and oil dressing, and sometimes lemon juice is added as well.
To make a delicious fattoush salad, start by prepping all of the ingredients. Gather cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, radishes, fresh herbs, and pita chips. Dice the vegetables and herbs into small pieces, then place them all into a large bowl. To make the dressing, combine olive oil, lemon juice, and seasonings such as cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss the vegetables with the dressing and top with the pita chips. Lastly, enjoy your delicious fattoush salad!
