Fattoush Salad from weelicious.com

When we were on vacation at farm camp in New York this summer, my hankering for Greek food hit an all time high. My poor children have been dragged through all of my pregnancy food needs for the past few months and it’s been exciting and interesting to see what they’ve enjoyed most.

International food has been at an all time high on my list of food cravings and Greek right at the very top. I love anything grilled, crunchy or briny, so Greek cuisine makes a ton of sense. When we go out Chloe and I always order a double portion of grilled octopus, Kenya a meze platter with hummus, baba ghanoosh and tabbouleh and we all love a large side of Fattoush Salad. If you’ve never had Fattoush Salad now is the time to give it a try as it’s really simple with the most basic of ingredients of cucumbers, tomatoes and pita chips. I’ve seen people use sumac (a delicious spice) into the dressing, but I really enjoy it with just a squeeze of lemon juice and olive oil keeping it as simple as possible.

Besides the fact that this is easy to prepare it’s a great dish to make with your kids as it’s really easy. Even for kids who don’t like the idea of eating “salad”, the pita chips add the same excitement that croutons do in a Caesar salad making it extremely memorable!

    I follow your page and enjoy most of your recipes.
    But the original Fattoush has to have purslane and sumac and all that you mentioned in your recipe. Yum yum yum one of the healthiest Mediterranean salads (if you omit the pita bread).

    Love fattouche salad!! I always make it for company and everyone loves it!
    However, for real authentic taste, chopped parsley and sumac are a must.... The parsley ands a fragrant freshness and sumac adds a real yummy zing to the dressing. Love your recipes :)
