“Fattoush is a Lebanese bread salad traditionally served as a starter. The crispy fried pita bread adds a wonderful crunch to this salad - you could also use flatbread. The spice sumac is essential for this recipe and adds a sour and tart flavor - you can find it in Turkish supermarkets, for example.”
