Method

Fattoush is an Arabic word that means “little bits of something,” and it’s an ideal name for this hearty mix of bread and vegetables. You can use any in-season vegetables you wish, including the tomatoes, green pepper, and fresh leafy greens found in our recipe. The bread-bites add a crunchy texture, and the dressing makes the salad sublime. That’s because it’s a tasty dressing made from sumac, lemon, olive oil, and Molassity Pomegranate Molasses.
