  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 large vine-ripe tomato,  cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2-3 cucumbers, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 5 radishes, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 green onions, thinly chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons sumac or more to taste, to garnish
  • Pita bread chips, as needed ( or cut 1 large double ply pita bread into triangles and fry in 3 tablespoons olive oil)*

Fattoush Salad Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated or knife minced
  • 3 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Coarsely ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil



  • Make the dressing: Whisk together lemon juice, garlic,  pomegranate molasses, dried mint, salt, and pepper. While whisking continuously, slowly add olive oil until the mixture is emulsified. Set the dressing aside.
  • Fattoush Salad: Add lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, green onions, mint and parsley to a large serving bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Just before serving, garnish with sumac and add the pita bread chips to the salad. Drizzle with pomegranate molasses if desired. 


Homemade pita bread chips: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pita bread and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5-7 minutes until the pita bread turns crispy and golden in color.

Storage: If the salad has not been tossed, you can store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. However, if it has already been tossed, it's best to consume it within 24 hours as it may become soggy after that. The dressing can be refrigerated and will keep well for up to 1 month.

Sumac: You can get it at specialty retailers in the spice section or on Amazon. If you can’t find it, use lemon zest.

Pomegranate molasses: Check Middle Eastern grocery stores or get it on Amazon. Alternatively, you can make your own by reducing pomegranate juice (with or without sugar). If you can't find it or make it, you can either leave it out of the recipe or substitute it with balsamic glaze.
