  • Prepare the pita chips: Break the pita bread into small pieces and fry them in some olive oil on the stove top. Take them out as soon as they are golden brown and crispy. Alternatively you can toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper, sumac and place them under the broiler for a couple minutes until crispy.
  • Chop up the base: Chop up your veggies into small cubes and add to a large bowl. Chop the herbs finely and add this to the same bowl.
  • Prepare the dressing: In a small bowl whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and sumac together till thick.
  • Combine your salad: Toss together the dressing, salad and pita chips. Serve up!

Notes

This fattoush salad recipe can be stored in the fridge for 3 – 4 days in an airtight container but be sure to store the tortilla separately to prevent it from getting soggy. Unfortunately defrosted tomatoes tend to be very mushy eaten raw so I don’t recommend freezing this dish.
