Easy Fattoush Salad Recipe

A delicious fattoush salad recipe made by Richelle, Canadian Food & lifestyle blogger.

Delicious Fattoush Salad

If I were to pick one type of cuisine that is my all time favorite- I think it would have to be Lebanese. I absolutely love all the crunchy vegetables and fresh herbs that go into each salad. When it comes to protein dishes- the spices are unique, and the flavour profiles full of depth.

The only downside is that all that deliciousness comes at a cost. Preparation of Lebanese meals is labor intensive and time consuming! BUT, after what feels like a LOT of trial and error I think I stumbled upon the right combination of ingredients to make this Fattoush salad recipe as delicious as possible, as easy as possible! Ha ha!

Richelle, Edmonton food Blogger, shares her  fattoush salad recipe that's not only delicious but easy!

A few tips to make the best Lebanese salad:

  • Save your Lebanese cuisine for days when you are not in a rush
  • Aim to give your dishes some time (aka a few hours) to “marinade” so that the flavors meld
  • Use fresh herbs if possible
  • You will also need to source “Sumac” – it is crucial for this recipe but a little tricky to find. Check Middle Eastern Grocery stores or Williams Sonoma online!
