This delicious Middle Eastern fattoush salad combines fresh veggies and herbs with crispy pita chips and a sumac dressing. Great as an appetizer or served with protein for a full meal.


  • 2 cups mini (or Persian) cucumbers, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 small head of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint, chopped
  • 16 baked pita chips*

  • 1/2 Tablespoon white balsamic or white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground sumac
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Make pita chips: Prep and bake pita chips according to the linked recipe. Let cool.
  2. Make dressing: In a bowl whisk together garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, sumac, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
