Fattoush (p. 87)

Fattoush is Lebanese Toasted Bread Salad and seemed like it would be a nice side with the steaks Matt made us last night (with a garlic, rosemary, and butter sauce -- yum!)

This comes together super fast since nothing needs to be cooked. Just toast some Arab flatbreads before hand, break them up, and toss them in the bottom of the bowl.

Layer in romaine lettuce, sliced radishes, scallions, cucumbers, pickles, tomatoes, and parsley (in that order) and top with a dressing of garlic, salt, lemon juice, and olive oil.

Wait to stir everything together until you're ready to eat so that the pita doesn't get soggy. 

This was scrumptious and I happily gobbled up the leftovers even though the pita was pretty soggy by that time. I'd eat this again for sure.

pitas -- $2.29 (6 are left)
romaine lettuce -- $1.69 (half of the head is left)
radishes -- $1.99 (most left)
scallions -- $.63 (half left)
cucumbers -- $1.25 (half left)
tomato -- $1.82
Total Cost of Fattoush: $9.67
($2.42 per serving)
