Serves: 4-6
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cut into ½-inch cubes, about 1 pound
  • 2 ½ cups diced cucumber, about 1 pound
  • ½ cup diced medium red onion (soak in ice water for 15 minutes to reduce harsh onion flavor, if desired)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2-3 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, about ½ lemon
  • 2-3 Tablespoons unrefined cold-pressed olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon ground sumac
  • ¼ teaspoon fine grain sea salt or to taste
  • A couple generous handfuls of pita chips
  1. Place the tomatoes, cucumber, onion and parsley in a serving bowl.
  2. In a small bowl or glass jar, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, sumac and salt. Pour over the vegetables and toss to combine.
  3. Crumble pita chips on top and toss together. Serve immediately.
Other additions: cooked chickpeas, crumbled feta, diced green pepper, chopped pitted olives, cubed avocado, julienned radish, shredded lettuce. I noticed Sarah at My New Roots used raw flax crackers in her Fattoush instead of toasted pita -- great idea!
