DD and I stopped at a random fruit market while driving the other day, just to check it out. The produce was fairly ordinary, but they had the nicest looking Lebanese flatbreads for sale. I bought some ready to try a recipe for Fattoush that I found over at Recipezaar.

It's a pretty simple (yet substantial!) salad: carrot, cos lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, radishes, spring onion, flat leaf parsley and red capsicum dressed with a garlic, olive oil and sumac dressing, plus some flatbread toasted in the oven until crisp and broken up into little pieces.

I took it to work for lunch with the salad in a big bowl, a little jar of dressing and a little sandwich bag with the broken flatbread and just threw it all together at lunchtime. Yum!

The sumac adds a really lovely flavour and the salad is so fresh and light. I made it a second time soon after and actually added more sumac by sprinkling it over the salad AND having it in the dressing. Both were good ;-)

It's a perfect, healthy, yummy lunch.
