Fattoush Salad (Healthy Salad) Recipe

Fattoush is a Mediterranean bread salad which originated in Northern Lebanon. It is made from fried left-over pita scraps, mixed with any in-season vegetables and herbs. It is traditionally regarded as an essential part of a Mediterranean or Middle Eastern meal. The vegetables used in the salad may vary but the distinct flavor comes from sumac.

This recipe will show you how easy it is to make a Fattoush salad at home. What makes this Fattoush salad unique and really delicious is the yogurt sauce. This healthy salad is low in calories and rich in vitamins and yet, very filling.

Ideas And Tips:

Sumac is an essential ingredient of authentic Fattoush salad. It is a spice used in Middle Eastern and South Asian cuisines. It has a very nice fruity-tart flavor but is not as overpowering as lemon or vinegar. Sumac’s bright acidity complements a wide variety of dishes. It can be used as an all-around dish topper, fried food seasoning, meatloaf spice, or added to spice rubs, marinades, and dipping sauces.
