Fattoush salad originates from Morocco. This salad was an absolute joy to make. There are various vegetables that create so many flavours and textures. It is a very colourful salad as well.
In addition to this, I also had the pleasure of frying pitta bread in butter. Adding these golden fried pieces of delicious created a buttery flavour to a garlicky minty dressing. I don’t usually use mint in my salad. However, this herb adds an absolute freshness and sweetness that just builds up.
