This is a different take on traditional Lebanese fattoush salad. I have added some additional ingredients in the form of chicken breasts, red bell pepper and feta cheese that make this a nice salad main course. Toasted whole wheat pita bread adds some crunch and texture and soaks up the citrus dressing. If you're not familar with ground sumac give it a try. Sumac is a burgundy-colored spice made from the berries of a bush that grows wild in the Middle East and parts of Italy. It has a lemony, fruity flavor and can be found in most Middle East grocery stores. Zatar is a combination of sesame seeds, sumac and thyme. Aleppo is a mild pepper also used in Middle East dishes. This recipe is adapted from a side salad in The Whole Foods Market Cookbook. The key is using lots of sumac and making sure the pita bread is very crisp. The original recipe uses mint and parsley. I decided to use more parsley only because I didn't have mint on hand. With all the acid in the dressing this dish calls for a wine that is acidic as well. I elected a Viansa Sonoma County 2011 Sauvignon Blanc which worked well.
