If you haven’t had a fattoush salad before…you are missing out!
There are quite a few Arabic restaurants in my surrounding area, which is how I first came to try a fattoush salad.
Of course my favorite part of the salad was the fried pita bread. It’s definitely not the healthiest part of the salad, that’s why I decided to lighten it up.
Instead of using the pita bread I used an Xtreme Ole High Fiber Tortilla, since one tortilla is only 1 point.
Instead of frying the tortilla I baked it to get it nice and crispy. I cut it into bite size pieces, put it on a cookie sheet and sprayed it with olive oil spray. I added a little bit of garlic powder and salt for flavor.
The other ingredients in the salad are pretty healthy. Romaine lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onion and parsley.
You can usually find sumac powder in large grocery stores in the “Mediterranean” section.
Sumac powder has a tangy lemon flavor to it, it’s really good!
This fattoush salad is only 2 points per serving for blue, green and purple! It’s great as a side dish or even a meal.
Yield: 4 servings
- 1 Ole Xtreme High Fiber Tortilla
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt, to taste
- 2 heads of romaine lettuce
- 1 cup English cucumber, sliced
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1/2 small red onion, sliced
- 1/2 cup parsley, stems removed and chopped
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon sumac powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the tortilla into bite size pieces (I used a pizza cutter). Add it to a cookie sheet and spray with olive oil spray. Season with garlic powder and salt. Bake 6-8 minutes or until crispy. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the tortilla pieces.
Chop the romaine lettuce and add it to a large bowl. Add the cucumber, tomato, red onion and parsley.
In a small bowl mix together the olive oil, lemon juice and sumac powder.
Add the dressing to the salad then add the tortilla pieces. Mix well and serve immediately.
