    As a Lebanese, I can say that the dressing makes the fattoush and this dressing is lacking essential ingredients like pomegranate molasses and summak! I mean I can’t imagine a good fattoush without them..

    You have omitted the two most important elements of fattoush: Purslane and sumac. Purslane is essential in this salad, as it grows wild everywhere, even in the US. In Lebanon it is also used interchangeably with spinach. Sumac is also the one spice that is a must in fattoush. In Lebanon, it grows wild and its lemony taste made its use prevalent in the mountains where citrus does not grow. In addition, many people use pomegranate molasses in lieu or in addition to lemon juice for the same reason.

    We only tried that one on a Lebanese restaurant last year and tasted amazing! We’re really anxious to try your version ASAP! Thank you!

    This recipe reminds me a little of “Panzanella” a Tuscan dish with stale bread and fresh vegetables.
    I love the pita bread chips. Preparing the bread this way must add so much flavour to it. A beautiful and delicious recipe indeed. Thank you Sheryl.
