  • Ready In

  1. Toast pita bread in a toaster oven until browned, 2 to 4 minutes; crumble into bite-size pieces.
  2. Combine cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, romaine lettuce, parsley, and mint in a large bowl. Mix olive oil, sumac, salt, and pepper into cucumber mixture using your hands. Add crumbled pita bread and toss.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For a less healthy alternative, you can fry the pita bread.
  • If you don't have sumac, you can substitute for freshly squeezed lemon (but it won't be as good!).
  • Other ingredients that can be found in fattoush include green pepper and radish.
  • Green onion can be substituted for the onion.
