“Fattoush is a Lebanese salad, good for hot weather. This recipe uses two unusual ingredients: sumac and purslane. Sumac, usually sold ground, is ground red berries and used in Middle Eastern, particularly Lebanese, cooking. Purslane is succulent with a lemony flavor, and makes a nice salad green. I find them at farmer's markets.”

i am lebanese, and this is my favorite salad. But just to note: the ingredients used in this recipe are right but the problem remains with the sauce that you are using. the real sauce requires: lemon juice, olive oil, sumac and garlic. and if you like, u can add a pinch of zaatar(A lebanese mixture of savory, thyme, sumac, and sesame seeds. Available prepared in most Middle-Eastern groceries).

I love Fattoush, I grew up with it as a kid. One suggestion I have is to toast the pita bread in an oven/toaster oven until crispy, break it into bite size pieces and mix it into the salad. It is a healthier option than frying the pita as another user mentioned, and adds a nice crunch to the fattoush.
