Fattoush Salad



  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground sumac
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint or basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • S&P to taste


  • 1 pepper chopped
  • 1 small onion sliced thin and chopped
  • 1 large tomato deseeded and chopped
  • 5-6 radishes sliced thin
  • 1 large cucumber deseeded and chopped
  • Approx 1 cup green lettuce


  • Mix all dressing ingredients in a small container with a tight sealing lid.
  • Shake vigorously until well mixed.
  • Put on the salad just before serving.


The salad is not about the lettuce, rather the veggies. To make it truly authentic (but not low carb), add fried pita pieces.
