Fattoush Salad

Sweet tomatoes are in season right now and if you've got old bread or pitta going stale, fattoush is a great way to use both in a refreshing summer salad. Change the lettuce to what you have in the garden. I recently made it with chicory which gave it a nice bitter element.

Fattoush is a Levantine salad packed with fresh herbs, traditionally made to use up older bread. It has a sour punch from sumac and lemon dressing and is spiced with zataar, an aromatic Middle Eastern spice blend. It's pretty easy to buy zataar these days, thanks to the recent popularity of Middle Eastern food, but you can make it yourself.
