How To Make Fattoush Salad with Mint Dressing

Tossed with a refreshing mint dressing, this fattoush salad is a Lebanese dish tossed with toasted pita and chopped veggies, finished with a tangy spice.

Preparation: 25 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 35 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

For Toasted Pita:

  • 2whole grain pitas,7 -inch diameter, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 2tbspextra-virgin olive oil
  • pinchfine sea salt

For Salad:

  • ½cupfresh mint dressing*
  • 10ozfresh romaine lettuce,(about 1 medium head of lettuce), chopped
  • 1large chopped tomato,or 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1cupcucumber,Persian or English, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1cupchopped red onion,(about 1 small onion)
  • ½cupchopped radish,(about 3 medium)
  • ½cuptorn fresh mint leaves
  • ½cupcrumbled feta,optional
  • ground sumac,for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss the torn pita with 2 tablespoons olive oil until lightly coated.

  3. Sprinkle with salt and bake in the oven for 8 to 12 minutes until the pieces are very golden and crispy, tossing halfway. Set the baking sheet aside to cool.

  4. To prepare the salad, make the salad dressing as directed and set it aside.

  5. In a large serving bowl, combine the chopped lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, radish, mint, optional parsley and feta, and toasted pita.

  6. Wait until ready to serve to drizzle up to ½ cup dressing over the salad. Gently toss until all of the ingredients are lightly coated in dressing.

  7. Serve promptly, and sprinkle individual servings generously with sumac.

  8. This salad is best consumed soon after making since the dressing will wilt the lettuce and soften the pita with time.

  9. If having leftovers, store the salad separately from the dressing, and toss individual salads before serving. The salad will keep this way, covered and refrigerated, for up to 4 days.
