lettuce leaves, chopped
cabbage leaves, chopped
red bell pepper, minced
sweet corn kernels
tomato, finely diced
onion, sliced thin
2 large cloves
mint leaves, minced
2 (6 inch)
pita bread rounds
vegetable oil for frying
This was excellent! I actually toasted the pita rounds and cut them into fours. we piled the fattoush on top and used the pitas as scoops. It was wonderful! Some Fattoush is more 'simple' in its ingredients, but I feel this one was very good and each ingredient complimented another in its own way. I recommend giving it a try!
This recipe has a lot of extra ingredients, some of which made the salad too bitter (ie. cabbage). My husband is Lebanese and I have never had Fattoush with this many ingredients. It's also missing a few key ingredients from other recipes (ie. sumac, salt, etc.) Keep it simpler - much tastier in the "Authentic" version! I would stick with the Authentic Lebanese Fattoush on this website.
Would be excellent if you omit the following: the cabbage, the red pepper, the carrots, the corn, the parsley.

Healthy, fresh, delicious! I did not use the mint leaves or corn. I served the salad in the outside of the cabbage (very bowl shaped!)
ive used fresh vegetables and didnt ommit any of the ingrediants coz each gives meaning to the other
NEVER USE dried garlic and parsley and store-bought salad, THIS SALAD IS ALL ABOUT BEING "FRESH"
I started with a store-bought salad mix and added many of the remaining ingredients that I had on hand, like canned corn and dried garlic and parsley.
