There are lots of variations on fattoush, but this is the one I keep in my recipe organizer app:

Mix together:
  • 3 tomatoes, cubed
  • 2 cukes, peels and cubed
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • A few green onions, chopped
  • 1 entire bunch of parsley, chopped

Add the dressing:
  • 0.5 cup of good extra virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 cup of lemon juice. Yes, really, that much.
  • A healthy pinch of salt.
  • 3 to 4 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of sumac. Get it on the internet or a Lebanese store. Absolutely required.

Toss with lots of fried pita bread, as this is really meant to be a fried pita salad.

If you must, you can add lettuce, but then you have a different kind of fattoush.
