Fattoush Salad

A staple salad dish among the Middle Eastern culture, Fattoush is a refreshing and tasty salad that can be enjoyed in any season, but is most popular on hot summer days.

The secret ingredient in this salad is a mix called "Sumac" which is a red spice that provides a tart taste to the dish and gives it a bright reddish color.

Fattoush is a Levantine salad made from toasted or fried pieces of khubz (pita bread) combined with mixed greens and other vegetables, such as radishes (if preferred) and tomatoes. Fattoush is popular among all communities in the Middle East.
