Arabic Fattoush Salad

Recipe by  

"Fattoush is one of the most well-known Middle Eastern salads and a standard dish on the 'mezza' (small dishes) table. It's a colorful tossed salad with a lemony garlic dressing, and if you've never made a single Arabic dish, this is a delicious and healthy place to start."

I think this had a bit too much zest from the mint and parsley leaves along with the lemon and cucumbers. This meal wasn't too bad though. Honestly there is room to improve. Try adding some spinach leaves or iceberg lettuce with a pinch of parsley and mint that way it isn't so strong.

Delicious salad. Added more garlic - I always order this at our local mediterranean restaurant so it was nice to have it at home too.

This was very tasty. I didn't add the pita to the salad because I ended up making some hummus to go with this, so we used the pita to dip the hummus. Also, the "add to grocery list" function didn't work too well for this recipe, so I had to make a few minor substitutions, such as regular tomatoes instead of grape and white onion instead of red. Overall, I mostly followed the recipe and it turned out really well!

Made per directions. Very light and tasty but still filling - pitas are excellent.

This was delicious and I loved the addition of the feta. The only addition I made were some olives.
