On a Side Note, Recipes


Don’t get mad… you won’t get any quantities for Fattoush, only ingredients!

While it can be quite frustrating for non-nationals to figure out the right ratios, this is exactly what you need to do with fattoush.

It is supposed to be a spontaneous garden salad – and when I mean garden, I mean a medley of greens you’d find on Lebanese soil !!

You’ll find here are the main ingredients we use; romaine lettuce is the main base. Some people add boiled potato pieces as well.

Make sure your toast your flat bread; you could alternatively fry it.
