Fattoush - Arabic Veggies & Flatbread Salad

Fattoush is a traditional salad made from toasted or fried pieces of pita bread (khubz 'arabi) combined with mixed greens and other vegetables. Fattoush are made by Arab cooks using stale flatbread as a base.. To make fattoush, cooks use seasonal produce, mixing different vegetables and herbs according to taste and use stale pita breads to this salad. The vegetables are cut  relatively as large pieces compared to tabbouleh which requires ingredients to be finely chopped. Sumac is usually used to give fattoush its sour taste..I prepared this salad with some stale Khobz' Arabi which is prepared few days back with whole wheat flour, this salad was truly refreshing, easy also filling , prefect for dinner or either for lunch during hot summer.Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Middle Eastern guest hosted by Asiya Akka, event by Julie..
