Lebanese Fattoush Salad

This is the quintessential salad that you’ll find at all Lebanese restaurants and it’s the quintessential salad that I grew up eating. Anytime my family is serving Lebanese food for dinner, we always include fattoush or Tabbouleh as an appetizer, along with hummus!

This authentic Lebanese Fattoush Salad is made with simple fresh vegetables and toasted Pita bread all tossed in a zesty sumac mediterranean dressing!

There are some creative variations of the Lebanese Fattoush Salad, but it’s always made with fresh vegetables like lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and radishes, always includes crispy pita bread (baked or fried), and always drenched in the infamous zesty dressing made with extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, sumac and pomegranate molasses. I actually make a big batch of the dressing and just drizzle it on any salad I make or even use it as a marinade for chicken kabobs.
