Fattoush salad is a middle eastern salad made with vegetables and toasted pita bread. It’s a delicious and filling recipe that can be made quickly and easily!


Units Scale
  • 2 round pieces of pita bread
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon za’atar seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Use kitchen shears to cut the pita bread around the perimeter so you have two circles for each pita bread.
  3. Slice each pita round into 8 triangles.
  4. Spread the pita into a single layer on a baking sheet.
  5. Brush 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil over the pita triangles.
  6. Bake for 10-14 minutes until the pita is crisp.
  7. While the pita is baking, whisk together the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, za’atar seasoning, and garlic powder.
  8. Once the pita is crispy, let cool slightly then gently break into smaller pieces.
  9. Add the cucumber, tomato, cilantro, romaine, and toasted pita chips into a large bowl.
  10. Drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Serve immediately.


If you’re making this salad in advance, wait to add the pita chips and dressing until just before serving.
