My personal take on Lebanese fattoush salad. A refreshing and healthy salad with lots of flavor. To make this salad into a hearty meal, add strips of grilled chicken or white fish. Makes a great side dish to any Middle Eastern or Mediterranean-style cuisine.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 2 pita bread rounds, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 large roma tomato, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • ½ English cucumber, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ¼ cup chopped feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, or more to taste
  • 1 lemon, juiced, or more to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • ½ teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon ground sumac
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat grapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir pita bread pieces in hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer bread pieces to a paper-towel lined plate.
  2. 2 Stir romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, cucumber, feta cheese, mint, and parsley together in a large bowl.
  3. 3 Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, Greek seasoning, sumac, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until completely combined. Pour olive oil mixture and pita bread pieces into lettuce mixture; toss to coat.
