This Fattoush Inspired Salad is easy to make, super fresh and very tasty. The addition of radishes and endives adds so much texture. This recipe was developed in partnership with the website Mediterranean Living.
Traditionally a Fattoush salad is a Lebanese salad made with fried pieces of unleavened bread, vegetables, vinegar or lemon and sumac. In this Fattoush Inspired Salad I chose to stay close to the traditional ingredients.
I love the simplicity of a Fattoush salad. There is no need for complicated dressings here to bring out the flavors of the fresh and crisp vegetables. Olive oil and lemon make them really pop. But the real star is the sumac. If you have never tried it, run to buy some! A little goes a long way with this pungent and citrusy spice which is unlike any other.
I used prepared mini pita breads for my recipe. This was a quick and convenient way to execute this Fattoush inspired salad. However for maximum quickness you could also buy pita chips at the store. Or if you feel very motivated you can make homemade pita to use. I shared my easy pita bread recipe with Mediterranean Living on their site here
