Fattoush

    Toasted pitta bread pieces are tossed with crisp cos lettuce, spring onions, cucumber, fresh tomatoes and a flavourful Middle Eastern dressing in this salad. Sumac, a traditional spice, is available from Middle Eastern grocers. It may be left out of this salad, but I think the flavour is important to the overall taste.
