You can add pomegranate syrup to the dressing mix and it gives it a great kick! (minus the sumac)

We ate this for dinner tonight with Poppy's Barbecued Middle Eastern Lamb #61570. I love fatoosh, but have learned to cut back the sumac to about half for our tastes. It's really a fresh and flavorful salad that you should try, and thanks fluffy for another great recipe.

I've been meaning to try this recipe for a while now. I'm so glad I finally did. It was delicious! I reduced the oil to 2 Tbsp with no problems. Very flavorful and satisfying. My bf and I split the entire recipe for dinner. The sumac and mint are wonderful. Thanks for posting!
