Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Toast pita bread in a toaster oven until browned, 2 to 4 minutes; crumble into bite-size pieces.

  • 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.

This was good! I did not use the romaine b/c I didn't have any but followed the recipe otherwise. I would've like some fresh lemon juice in addition to the sumac in this as well but that's my opinion. This went really well with our dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
