Wordless Wednesday – Fattoush



3 hearts romaine, chopped

1/2 English cucumber or 3 Armenian cucumbers, peeled and sliced

2 cups grape tomatoes, sliced

1/4 cup sweet onion, chopped finely

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped finely

1 1/2 cups crushed pita chips

1 tsp. sumac (optional)


1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3-4 T lemon juice (or balsamic vinegar)

1/2 tsp. garlic, mashed into a paste

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Chop the romain and place in a salad bowl. Add the cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and mint. The mint is what makes this salad so fresh. It should make 1/2 cup after it has been finely chopped. Gently toss the ingredients with the dressing. Add the pita chips and sumac and gently toss again. For the perfect, healthy meal, add canned tuna or shredded chicken. Although fattoush is well-known for its lemony dressing, I prefer balsamic vinegar. Either will do. Serves 4.

  1. Love it, Sue! I love fattoush, your recipe looks simple and delicious. Do you ever use pomegranate molasses in your dressing?

    I have seen the Armenian cucumbers in the stores but have never used them. Will pick them up next time.
