Fattoush Salad

It was my lunch today & yummy…. so here is the recipe for you all to make it too ;)


INGREDIENTS:

2 pitta bread (or khubbiz)
1 bag pre-packed lettuce selection
8 radishes, sliced
8 spring onions, sliced
1 cucumber, sliced
1-2 large brine cured pickles
3 tomatoes
1/3 cup finely chopped parsley
1/3 cup finely chopped mint
1 garlic clove crushed
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons ground sumac

METHOD:
Chop all the vegetables according to the above specifications and place in a large salad bowl. Crush the garlic and chop it. In a separate small bowl mash the garlic with the salt using the back of a spoon. Stir in the lemon juice and oil, beating with a fork to mix well. Pour the dressing over the salad. Grind the black pepper over the top of the salad.

Split each of the pitta’s in half horizontally so that you have 4 thin rounds of bread. Toast the breads lightly under the grill until they are golden and crisp. Break them into small pieces and crumble them on top of the salad. Mix thoroughly. Top with the sumac.
