Fattoush Salad

Fattoush salad is one of my and Kevin's favorite salads. Its a Lebanese salad and it is so simple and so good! And so easy to make, too! I looked around on the internet and came up with this recipe that works for our tastes. I made this for the potluck today after our nephew's baptism. I'll update later with pictures (hopefully) if I remember to take them once its assembled.

Fattoush Salad

3 heads romaine, chopped
1/3 cup minced fresh mint
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
1 bunch green onions
1 large seedless cucumber, diced
1-2 bell peppers, diced
4 good-sized tomatoes, diced
1-2 cups broken up whole wheat toasted pita chips
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 Tablespoons sumac
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix the lettuce, mint, parsley, green onions, cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes in a large salad serving bowl. Mix in broken pita chips just before pouring on dressing and serving.

Mix the oil, lemon juice, garlic, sumac, salt and pepper in a glass jar and shake well to incorporate. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Pour over salad just before serving.
