I tried Sumac for the first time when I made this- I bought mine online at Penzeys.com; they have almost every spice you can think of! I love Sumac- it's almost lemony.
I will definitely be making this salad again!
Fatoosh- Lebanese Bread Salad
adapted from Allrecipes
2 pita breads (or naan)
8 leaves romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
2 green onions, chopped
1 cucumber, halved and sliced
3 tomatoes, cut into wedges (or handful halved grape tomatoes)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons sumac powder
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1. If using pitas, toast them 5 to 10 minutes in a 350 degree F oven, until crisp. Remove from heat, and break into bite size pieces. If using naan, just grill and then cut or tear into bite-sized pieces.
2. In a large bowl, toss together toasted pita (or naan) pieces, romaine lettuce, green onions, cucumber, and tomatoes.
3. In a small bowl, mix the parsley, garlic, sumac powder, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and mint. Pour over the pita mixture, and toss just before serving.
