Fattoush is one of the most well-known Middle Eastern dishes. In my fattoush salad, I add plenty of fresh vegetables and dry bread without using frying oils.
Here’s how to make this delicious, plant-based recipe.

  • Half a loaf of Shami dry bread .
  • The juice of ½ lemon.

  • 2 tbsp boiled or canned chickpeas.
