Ingredients

Fattoush Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 English cucumber, thinly-sliced
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and thinly-sliced
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup loosely-packed chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 to 3 cups pita chips, homemade* or store-bought
  • ground sumac and freshly-ground black pepper

Lemon Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 large clove garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground sumac
  • (optional: 2-3 teaspoons honey to sweeten, if desired)

Instructions

  1. Make the lemon dressing: Vigorously whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl (or shake together in a mason jar) for 30 seconds.  Set aside.
  2. Make the salad: Combine the Romaine, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, radishes, mint, and half of the pita chips in a large mixing bowl.  Drizzle evenly with the lemon dressing, then toss until evenly combined.
  3. Serve: Serve immediately, garnished with the remaining pita chips, plus an extra sprinkle of sumac and freshly-ground black pepper.


Notes

Homemade pita chips: To make homemade pita chips, slice or tear pita bread into bite-sized pieces.  Toss it with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Then bake at 400°F for 7 to 15 minutes (depending on the thickness of your pita chips) until golden and crispy.
