Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Fattoush (Arabic: فتوش, also fattush, fatush, fattoosh, and fattouche) is a Levantine bread salad made from toasted or fried pieces of pita bread (khubz ‘arabi) combined with mixed greens and other vegetables, such as radishes and tomatoes. Fattoush belongs to the family of dishes known as fattat (plural) or fatta, which use stale flatbread as a base.[no_toc]

Fattoush includes vegetables and herbs according to season and taste. The vegetables are cut into relatively large pieces compared to Tabbouleh which requires ingredients to be finely chopped. Sumac is usually used to give fattoush its sour taste.

Notes

If the cucumbers are very fresh there is no need to peel them.
Coating the toasted pita in olive oil prevents it from getting soggy when mixed with the vegetables and dressing.
