The Fattoush Salad

image

T.W.O. first discovered fattoush salad at a great lunch spot in San Francisco called Blue Barn! The restaurant offers many kinds of salads and sandwiches, but the fattoush salad was our favorite. This salad is a variation of your traditional Greek salad – It has many of the same ingredients, but includes pita chips, parsley, mint and garbanzo beans. It’s delicious and makes for a great lunch or dinner dish!

Ingredients

For the salad:

-Mix of romaine and kale lettuce
-Garbanzo beans, rinsed
-Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
-Persian cucumbers, sliced
-Red Onion, chopped
-Kalamata olives, chopped
-Mint, chopped
-Parsley, chopped
-Pita Bread
-Feta cheese
-Chicken (optional)

For the dressing:

-1/4 cup olive oil
-1 cup lemon juice
-1 teaspoon cumin
-1 garlic clove, chopped
-Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 415°F. Cut the pita bread into small squares and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread the pita bread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in oven for 15 minutes, making sure to flip the pita bread over halfway through so they cook evenly. Take the pita chips out of the oven and set aside.

Toss the ingredients with the dressing. Make sure to add in the dressing right before serving so the pita chips don’t get soggy.
