This simplified fattoush salad skips the lettuce, starring crunchy chopped vegetables, fresh herbs, fried pita chips, and a bright citrus vinaigrette. Learn how to make the perfect fried pita chips.
Tear the pita into small pieces.
Slice one clove of garlic. Place garlic into a cold frying pan. Add one tablespoon olive oil and turn on flame.
When hot, add pieces of pita. Stir over medium flame until pita is crispy.
Place tomato, cucumber, red onion, and parsley in a bowl.
Mince the remaining clove of garlic. Combine with lemon juice, the remaining quarter-cup of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Season vegetables with the dressing. Scatter pieces of pita on top. Serve immediately.
