Fattoush Salad Edit

Fattoush Salad Edit

This is my favourite salad of all time, so I have been playing around with the recipe for years. Tweaking it to my personal taste.

I do love the bread but I removed it as I don’t really want to eat bread often. I also introduced some tangy fruit to meet my 10 a day quota while also enhancing the tangy tart flavours of this salad.

Goes really well alongside meat and fatty foods as it is very refreshing and contains many ingredients which help our bodies break down fats more easily.

Enjoy!

Serves 3-4.

-1 handful Babyleaf/mixedleaf/rocket (washed).
