Fattoush 24.02.2011

I’m suffering from extreme misery relating to the premature end of Summer. This salad makes everything alright, temporarily. It has much crunchy goodness.


  • 2 small pitta breads
  • 3 fat spring onions halved and sliced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, quartered lengthwise and chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • Bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Bunch mint
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6-8 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Maldon salt
  • Half a teaspoon sumac


Break pitta breads open and toast in oven for about 5 minutes until crisp.

Combine spring onions, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley and mint and add minced garlic.

Break the pitta breads into pieces over the salad bowl and drop them in, reserving a few for the top.

Toss the salad and dress with oil and lemon juice; add salt. Sprinkle with sumac and extra pitta bread.
