Fattoush – a zesty Lebanese salad

Vegan Fattoush

A Refreshing Zesty Salad

Traditionally, stale pita bread is fried and mixed with veggies to make a fattoush salad. My friend Linda made this for dinner with a buttermilk dressing. I think the zest from the lemons with the fresh herbs make this a lovely light dinner, perfect for when you can get ripe tomatoes and maybe even eat outside…. serve with warm flat bread and your favorite hummus.

2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped small

1 bunch parsley, chopped

1 1.75oz. package fresh mint, chopped

2 lemons, zested and juiced

5 green onions, chopped

bunch mild radish, sliced (optional)

2 TBL. extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp. corriander (optional)

2 cups tomatoes, chopped

8 cups romaine, thinly sliced (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

Zest lemons before juicing. In a large bowl, mix first 8 ingredients (can be mixed a day ahead). Before serving add tomatoes, optional lettuce and season to taste.

Serve with baked pita bread, flat-out bread, etc… and fresh or store bought hummus of choice.
