Fattouche Salad: Date Added: 21 Nov 2009 Ingredients:

2 large pita breads
4 ripe flavorful plum tomatoes (or 3 medium tomatoes)
1 medium cucumber -- peeled, quartered
lengthwise, and sliced
3 scallions - (to 4) -- minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 small dark green lettuce head -- torn, (optional)
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste

Cooking Instructions:

Toast the pita breads in a 375 degree oven or toaster oven until golden and just beginning to become crisp, about 8 minutes. When cool enough to handle, tear into bite-sized pieces or cut into 1-inch squares with kitchen shears or a sharp knife.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a serving bowl. Add the cut pita and toss again. Serve at once.

This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.

"Not as well known in our culture as is tabouleh, which is like this, a Lebanese salad, fattouche is just as delicious. It gets its characteristic touch from the use of small bits of toasted pita bread."
