Fattoush

I just came back from a two day retreat and it seemed like all I did was eat!

Full breakfasts, creamy sauces and dessert with every meal.

I was craving veggies and a simple supper.

Plus I missed my kitchen…

As I was going through my mail, I saw a Penzy Spices catalog and found a recipe for Fattoush!

Perfect!

I love Fattoush – it’s a Middle Eastern vegetable salad with dried pita bread topped with a lemony vinaigrette dressing.

It’s a crunchy salad full of flavor – a bit of mint in the salad really compliments the dressing.

Sumac is a must – I did have some in the spice cupboard.

I had fun being back in my kitchen again chopping all the veggies!

This salad makes a great side to grilled chicken or fish when you’re looking for a light meal!

What I was making a year ago – BANANA BREAD!
