Fabulous Fattoush

30 mins (prep 30)
14 ingredients
6-8 servings
A simple yet resourceful salad that uses up day old Arabic or pita bread. (See Arabian Pita Bread for an easy Arabic bread recipe.) I added one or two CG twists to this, combining various recipes from cookbooks and online. The local farmers' market was a great help, too! Purslane leaves were added (about 1 cup.) It is available from farmers' markets and in well-stocked grocery stores. If you cannot find it, substitute baby spinach, watercress, arugula/rocket or nasturtium leaves. Purslane can also be found in some packaged mixed greens-a.k.a. mesclun, field greens or spring mix. Look for it in the ingredients' list on the back of the package. Quality ingredients, especially good quality olive oil are very important in this salad.
