Fattoush (Lebanese Bread Salad)

image This is a great salad. It goes well with anything or it’s great on its own. I usually make Fattoush as a side when I make roast veggies for dinner. However, chicken breast is on the menu tonight and the tanginess of the sumac in the salad dressing will go brilliantly with it. Sumac is a berry that has been dried and ground into a course powder. at adds a letaste tang to whatever you use it on. Most supermarkets stock it in the herb and spice section now-a-days.

The thing with this salad is you can use whatever salad ingredients you have at hand. You can choose any or all of the ingredients I’ve used and as much or as little as you like. Just mix together the dressing ingredient and set aside. Toss the salad stuff in a large bowl, add the dressing and mix well.

Only add the bread when you’re ready to serve so it stays crunchy.

Salad: Lettuce leaves, chopped tomato, cucumber,  radish, capsicum, parsley,  spring onion, toasted Lebanese bread

Dressing: 2 tbs olive oil 1 1/2 tsp sumac 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 1 tbs lemon juice 2  cloves crushed garlic
