Fattoush, is a salad made from toasted or fried pieces of Pita bread and different kinds of vegetables and herbs, depends on season .
In this one I used cut grape Tomatoes, Cucumber, Lettuce, Onion and Mint . Mix them together and sprinkle with Sumac .
Cut Pita bread into small squares and toast or fry them in oil .
For dressing, mix salt, pepper, lemon juice and Extra version Olive oil .
Drizzle the vegetable mixture with the dressing, and mix to combine. Spread the Pita bread pieces on top .
What is Sumac ?
It is a reddish-purple powder used as a spice in Middle Eastern cuisine to add a lemony taste to salads or meat. Or as a garnish on meze dishes such as hummus. In Iranian (Persian and Kurdish) cuisine, sumac is added to rice or kebab.
