Fattoush Salad Recipe

This Recipe Combines Summer's Greatest Hits in a Salad Bowl

If you're looking for a fresh Summer salad, this lightened-up take on a classic Levantine recipe is the answer. The Kitchy Kitchen shows us how to make this bold and bright option.

A traditional Levantine salad, Fattoush usually includes stale pita and sumac, a tart spice. But in the interest of keeping it light, and not having to hunt down an ingredient like sumac, I kept it simple. If you want a more authentic experience, add sumac and dried or fried pita chips; but, as is, you have a fresh, bright salad filled with great flavor and texture.
