Author Notes

Fattoush is favorite bread salad in all Middle Eastern countries that uses the freshest vegetables of the season and day old or toasted bread and dresses them lightly. This salad can be either a main course for lunch and dinner, or a side dish to the main.

In this version the addition of grilled cabbage gives this salad a nice smokey flavor and extra crunch that the traditional lettuce won't provide. Go ahead, fire up that grill and throw the cabbage on. —Chef Reza Setayesh | Plant Loving Humans
