Fattoush-ish Salad


I don’t know if this should be called a fattoush salad cause they often have capsicum (gross) and no chickpeas. This shit is so simple it seems silly to write a recipe for it – you can see pretty much everything that’s in it in the picture. But apparently that’s ‘not the point’ of a ‘recipe blog’ so ‘here we are’:

Serves 12 as a side.

INGREDIENTS
5 Tomatoes
1 Continental cucumber
2 Cans of chickpeas
1 Lemon
2-ish small pita breads
1/2 bunch parsley
1/2 bunch coriander
½ cup mint
2 teaspoons sumac
Olive Oil

Slice the tomatoes into chunks, the cucumber into thick-ish semi-circles. Toss together with the chickpeas, parsley and coriander.

Roughly chop the mint. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into a bowl with a few glugs of olive oil (maybe like half a cup? Go with your heart), the mint and the sumac. Use this to dress the salad. Before serving, toast the bread, rip it up, and throw it on top of the salad.
