Fattoush is a Lebanese salad packed with lemony flavours. It is delicious served as part of a mezze with hummus and makes a seriously flavour and nutrition packed salad.
Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Lebanese
Serves: 3-4
  • 1.5 baby gem lettuces
  • 1 slice of sourdough toast or 1 wholemeal pitta bread
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3-4 radishes, halved or quartered depending on size
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of chives, roughly chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced on an angle
  • 5cm piece of cucumber, cut into 2cm chunks
For the Dressing:
  • 100ml olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of sumac
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ a clove of garlic, finely chopped
  1. Start by making the dressing so that the flavour of the sumac can infuse. Simply combine all of the ingredients together in a glass and whisk until combined. Set aside.
  2. Next, chop the lettuce – I like to do this by cutting them in half lengthways and then cutting each half into little wedges from the root. Lay in a bowl or on a platter.
  3. Pile the remaining salad ingredients on top of the lettuce and finish with a generous dousing of the dressing.
  4. Serve fresh with lots of other little Eastern inspired dishes.
