Fattoush Salad is a traditional Middle Eastern salad, made with a variety of vegetables and herbs depending on season and taste and tossed with pita scraps.
This traditional Middle Eastern Fattoush Salad combines bright herbs, fresh vegetables, citrusy lemon and sumac, and -- of course -- crispy pita. Fattoush can easily be adapted to your tastes, so feel free to add and subtract vegetables and herbs according to your tastes. Serving size: 1/2 cup, makes 4 servings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Cut pita into 1” wedges and toss with canola oil. Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 8 minutes. Allow pita to cool and break into smaller pieces.
Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sumac, salt and pepper.
When ready to serve, combine crisp pita, cucumber, tomato, onion, parsley, mint, and feta in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss until well-coated.
*If you are unable to find sumac, we suggest substituting lemon pepper seasoning. Nutrition information per 1/2 cup serving: 80 calories, 4 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 150 mg sodium, 9 g carbohydrate, 2 g sugar, 1 g fiber, 2 g protein
