FATTOUSH

In Levantine cuisine, one of the most popular is Fattoush salad. The origin of the salad cannot be traced but this salad is invariably the staple for Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Iraq and other Arabic countries. Each country has their own specific taste. Although Tabouleh is also a famous salad in this region, I prefer Fattoush as it has a balance of freshness of crunchy lettuces, crunchiness from the fried pita bread and mild flavour and benefits of pomegranate
