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.

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.
