Fattoush salad is a traditional Middle Eastern salad made with a variety of fresh vegetables and herbs, such as lettuce, cucumber, tomato, radish, and parsley. The salad is typically dressed with a simple mixture of olive oil and lemon juice, and then seasoned with sumac, a tangy and slightly fruity spice commonly used in Middle Eastern cuisine.

In addition to the vegetables, fattoush salad also typically includes crispy pieces of toasted pita bread, which are torn into bite-sized pieces and tossed into the salad. The pita bread adds a satisfying crunch and a bit of heft to the salad, making it more filling and substantial.

Other common additions to fattoush salad include sliced red onion, fresh mint leaves, and sometimes even feta cheese or olives, depending on the regional variation. The salad is often served as a side dish or appetizer, and it pairs particularly well with grilled meats or fish.
