Fattoush is a Middle Eastern salad made with toasted pita bread. Mine is given a flavor boost by using za’atar to season the pita chips.
Fattoush is a Middle Eastern salad made with toasted, fried or day-old pita bread.
Similar to the Italian panzanella salad, it is a great use for stale or leftover bread.
Lebanese restaurants typically deep fry the pita chips. Not only does that add a ton of unnecessary fat and calories but it also weighs down the bright and delicious flavors of this classic salad.
Each brand has a slightly different recipe but it is a combination of oregano, toasted sesame, sumac and other spices.
