Fattoush Salad


Although traditionally Lebanese in origin, Fattoush Salad is very common throughout the Middle East. It’s a family style salad you can really dig into. Chock full of delicious ingredients and textures. We serve this at pretty much any occasion where we have a large crowd to feed. This version is vegan and eliminates the feta cheese.
