Fattoush is a Lebanese salad made with toasted slices of pitta bread and salad greens and vegetables. It's also often called 'peasant' salad. One of the key ingredients to the salad is the spice 'sumac', it gives fattoush its recognisable flavour.

Once the bread is crisp, mix it with the olive oil and the sumac. Do not add the bread to the rest of the salad until right before you are ready to serve. Otherwise it may get soggy.
