Fattoush is one of my favorite salads of all times! There are so many great flavors going on there and it is always so crunchy and fresh!

I love fattoush salad. Forget salad, it's a blessed meal. People request me to make this when I go somewhere for dinner.

They can't seem to get the ratio of lemon juice to olive oil just right. And they never salt it enouugh.

did I mention that I love this salad?!?!

This is my all-time favorite salad. I usually add sumac to the dressing.

Salaam Alaykum girls!

Can you post a recipe for Mutbaq, please? I had it only once when I was in Saudi and remember liking it. I wanna learn how to make it now. Sadly, the internet doesn't seem to have very many mutbaq recipes! :(
