Authentic Lebanese Fattoush image

Fattoush is a Lebanese salad, good for hot weather. This recipe uses two unusual ingredients: sumac and purslane. Sumac, usually sold ground, is ground red berries and used in Middle Eastern, particularly Lebanese, cooking. Purslane is succulent with a lemony flavor, and makes a nice salad green. I find them at farmer's markets.

Great light salad of an Eastern-Mediterranean flavor, with crunchy pita chips. Big favorite! I learned it from some Lebanese friends. After I tasted it, I needed to keep it.

Fattoush (Lebanese Tomato and Pita Salad) image

For millions of Muslims in the United States, food takes on a new significance during Ramadan. Fasting during this time is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with devotion to Allah, prayer, giving alms and visiting Mecca. Soup or salad, like the fattoush made with tomatoes and pita bread, is a light way to break the fast.
