Arabic Fattoush Salad

Recipe by: Sonja Taha

“Fattoush is one of the most well-known Middle Eastern salads and a standard dish on the ‘mezza’ (small dishes) table. It’s a colorful tossed salad with a lemony garlic dressing, and if you’ve never made a single Arabic dish, this is a delicious and healthy place to start.”


1 tablespoon vegetable oil for frying
2 small (4 inch) pita breads, torn into pieces
1 large English cucumber, finely diced
3 cups halved grape tomatoes
1/2 red onion, finely diced
3/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
3/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, or to taste
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
1 clove garlic, crushed (or more to taste)
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
ground sumac
crumbled sheep-milk feta cheese, or to taste
