Fattoush Salad Recipe

When most people think of Lebanese food or food from the Levant region, they often think of Hummus, Falafel and Fattoush. I’ve shared several hummus recipes before, but I have not shared my Fattoush Salad Recipe. After asking all of you on Facebook, which recipes you’d like for Ramadan, Fattoush was at the top of the list!

I love adding a variety of crisp vegetables. Some are more traditional, but you can’t really go wrong!

One of my favorite Ramadan dishes is fattoush! Its so flavorful and was a stable on every menu during the month, while I was growing up. When our garden was ready to harvest, my mom would add our garden fresh mint, tomatoes and cucumbers 😀

The chopping of the vegetables can be tedious, but I really find it therapeutic. Using a really sharp knife and a sturdy cutting board, will make the task much easier.

For the dressing, I highly recommend making it in a jar. This allows all the ingredients to marry and emulsify properly. I also recommend allowing the dressing to sit for 10 minutes. You can make the dressing first and then chop all your veggies 😀
