Fattoush - Toasted Bread Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chef floWer

Fattoush is a classic Lebanese dish. It is often eaten by itself as a starter or light lunch. Saumac is an essential ingredient. It is a spice that is made from the dried, powdered berries of the sumac tree. It was my first time trying Saumac and I really enjoyed it, next time I would add one more teaspoon of the Saumac. This was used as a side salad for Shish Taouk Toum - Grilled / BBQ Chicken With Garlic Sauce . This recipe comes from a book called "The Lebanese Cookbook" by Hussien Dekmak

Thank you for this recipe. It was the basis for a great salad. I added the same amount of lemon juice as oil and upped the sumac to 1 tbs. Try it this way and you will LOVE this salad.
