Fattoush Salad

by | Feb 19, 2021 | Appetizers, Nut Free, Recipes, Salads, Vegan Cheese

This lovely “warm” weather (it’s all relative, right?) we’re having here in Calgary is getting me excited about spring and summer..!

After making so many soups and stews over the past little while, I find myself craving more fresh foods when the sun comes out.

Fattoush salad is one of my favourite salads to make and eat – it’s so colorful and full of beautiful flavours, plus it’s a great opportunity to use my Za’atar Pita Chips!

‘Fattoush’ is also the name of one of my favourite restaurants in Israel (located in the city of Haifa by the beautiful Bahá’í gardens) – I can’t wait until I can go visit my family and indulge in delicious meals with them once again.
