I recently ate at a delicious Lebanese restaurant here in vancouver called Nuba. It was fantastic and inspired me to start cooking Middle Eastern style food. This salad is a variation of the fattoush salad. Other ingredients you may want to add are cucumbers and tomatoes. Enjoy!

SERVES 2

1 Large Toasted Pita, broken up into quarter sized pieces
1/2 head of green leaf lettuce, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
1/4 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
2 scallions, thinly sliced
8 kalamata olives, pitted and quarted
juice from half a lemon
2 tablespoons olive olive oil
2 teaspoons zatar
1 garlic clove
salt to taste
Put lettuce, parsley, mint, olives and onions in a wide bowl. Meanwhile, crush garlic with a large knife, chop finely, add a pinch of salt and smash into a paste with a large knife. Add lemon juice, olive oil, zatar and garlic with a pinch of salt in a small bowl and whisk together to emulsify. Pour dressing over salad leaves and toss with your hands to coat evenly. Add pieces of toasted pita and lightly toss. Serve!

So tasty! You might want to eat the whole thing by yourself! (I did).
