Fattoush Salad

Fattoush salad is a Mediterranean salad that embodies all the qualities of a great salad: freshness, colorful and tasty!

I try to cut all of the pieces to an even size whether its a cucumber, pepper or salad. This will help getting nice varied bites of your salad and it makes for a better presentation overall.

Secret ingredients for the vinaigrette are definitely sumac which is a vinegary spice and pomegranate molasses which give a nice tangy and sweet taste to the vinaigrette.

You can eat the fattoush salad as a side with Mediterranean grilled meat recipes like my beef kofta or chicken shish taouk.

Enjoy!
