Fattoush-Bread Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Angela Sara

This is a much loved Syrian peasant salad in which pieces of soaked toasted bread provide an unusual texture. From my well used cookbook, A New Book of Middle Eastern Food.

This is going to become a regular on our table. It's got all the things I love in food going for it-lemon, tomatoes, herbs and good olive oil. We ate this tonight with Canarygirl's Middle Eastern Burgers, and it was a great meal. I added the garlic, but next time I plan to leave it out, as it was a bit harsh on the tongue. Thanks Angela for a terrific recipe.
