Fattoush Salad

Fattoush Salad

Fattoush… has to be one of the most popular salads (beside or perhaps just after tabbouli) on a Lebanese menu. It’s healthy, tangy and fresh with a perfect crunch from the addition of toasted pita bread. It’s also very easy to make and works as a great accompaniment to many meals.

Here’s how to make it…


½  cos lettuce, shredded

1 cucumber, diced

2 tomatoes, diced

5 radishes, sliced

2 spring onions, finely chopped

½ red capsicum, diced

1 handful parsley, chopped

1 tbsp mint, chopped

1 Lebanese bread


1 garlic clove, crushed

2 tsp sumac

3 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp lemons juice

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pomegranate molasses


  1. In a large bowl place lettuce, tomatoes, capsicum and cucumbers, radish, spring onions, mint and parsley.
  2. Toast the bread under the grill until crisp. This may only take a couple of minutes so don’t take your eyes off it and let it burn.
  3. In a small bowl combine the garlic, sumac, oil, lemon juice, salt and pomegranate molasses to make the dressing.
  4. Break up the bread and add with dressing to vegetables. Toss gently and serve salad immediately.
