AUTHENTIC LEBANESE FATTOUSH
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.

FATTOUSH (LEBANESE TOMATO AND PITA SALAD)
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.

What is Syrian fattoush?Food Safari's fattoush. After taboulleh, fattoush is the most well-known salad of Syria, and for many, the sharp flavour of the sumac in the dressing, the crunchiness of the chunky cuts of tomato, cucumber and radish, and the thin baked pieces of bread to soak up the dressing, make it the county’s favourite salad.
What can I use instead of fattoush?For the salad, you can also add more herbs or other greens such as arugula (not traditional to fattoush but wonderful!) To bake the pita chips instead, follow baking instructions in my homemade pita chip recipe and season with kosher salt and sumac when ready.
How much molasses do you put in fattoush?Variations: fattoush salad dressing often include pomegranate molasses. If that's available to you, add 1 to 2 teaspoons to the dressing, it really does make it extra special.
