Fattoush salad

Memories came rushing as I chopped my way to Fattoush salad. This used to be a regular in our work canteen salad spreads. I used to eat this day in and day out so much so that  towards the end I couldn't stand the sight of it. But after a break, again I have fallen in love with the same. 

This bread salad is choke full of nutrients and much needed if you are looking for a veggie break.

Have you tried fried pita? It is really tasty with a hint of sumac, if you can get hold of one in Middle Eastern shops. 

Pita bread - 1 round
Lettuce - 7 big leaves
Cherry tomatoes - 6
Radishes - 6
Parsley - 1/2 cup
Mint - 1/4 cup
Cucumber - 1
Sumac - 1 tbsp or according to your taste.
Peppers (optional)

Garlic mashed - 1 clove
Olive oil - 3 tbsp or more 
Lemon juice - 1 small lime

Fry pita in olive oil. Alternatively you can toast. Set aside.
Chop all the veggies. Prepare the dressing. Now plate the salad and sprinkle over the fried pita breaking them into pieces and sumac. Pour the dressing and you are done with your peasant salad.   

Add fried pita before serving or they will go soggy.
