You make think we’ve gone a little overboard on the bread recipes these days, but listen, it’s 2020 and things haven't exactly been all fine and dandy and sometimes you JUST NEED CARBS. So, we’re making another bread salad and we’re not sorry about it.
The star of the show this week is Fattoush, a Levantine Bread Salad. Said to originate by Lebanese farmers, this salad is made using fried or baked leftover scraps of pita bread, khubz, and whatever fresh vegetables are on hand.
Alyse’s take on this dish uses the Spicewalla Green Za'atar blend, which is chock full of herbs, sumac, and sesame seeds to bring a bright burst of flavor and texture to this refreshing and bright summer salad.
