Flatbread Salad with Tomato, Chickpeas, Feta, and Mint

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

This take on fattoush, a Middle Eastern bread salad, makes a great summertime meal as there’s no cooking involved (aside from toasting some bread), and the flavors are bold and fresh. Many supermarkets carry lavash; if you can’t find it, substitute pita bread, but split it before toasting.


  • 5 oz. lavash
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 small lemons)
  • 1 medium shallot, minced (about 3 Tbs.)
  • 1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 7 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup packed, finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 8 oz. cherry tomatoes, halved (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 6 oz. sugar snap peas, trimmed and quartered on a diagonal (about 1-3/4 cups)
  • 6 oz. feta, crumbled (about 1 heaping cup)
  • 3 oz. baby arugula (3 packed cups)
  • 2 Tbs. minced Peppadew peppers (optional)

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Bake the lavash on the oven rack until lightly browned, 4 to 7 minutes; let cool (it will crisp as it cools).
  • Meanwhile, whisk the lemon juice, shallot, sugar, a large pinch of salt, and a couple of grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes, then whisk in the olive oil and mint. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Combine the chickpeas, tomatoes, and snap peas in a large bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette. Coarsely crumble the lavash over the top. Add the feta, arugula, and peppers, if using, and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately.

    Love this and need to remember to serve it more often. My grocery was out of lavash so used toasted naan. Such a nice summertime salad for dinner.

    This will be a keeper in our household. Made a few changes/substitutes and it turned out fine. Instead of cherry tomatoes I used a few of the heirloom tomatoes that we are growing now. Our local supermarket didn't have any snap peas at the time so I substituted snow peas. They also do not carry lavash and I used naan bread instead of pita. I didn't put the naan in the salad but served it on the side.

    Delicious! I think the Peppadew peppers add a great element of kick and sweetness. Served chicken on the top and it was a nice addition, though no meat is superb as well. In the future, I might add toasted nut to the recipe for additional crunch(in addition to the sugar snaps). The pepper flavor of the arugula adds a nice complexity to the dish. This will be in heavy rotation in my kitchen.

    Absolutely delish! Quite lemon-y, but I like lemon so that wasn't a problem for me. Subbed blanched green beans for the peas (just that I like green beans better). And I couldn't find arugula, so I used a bagged spring mix. It was a hit with my 8-year-old and my husband too, but my 6-year-old didn't like it.
