{Fattoush} Lebanese Tomato Pita Sumac Salad Recipe

{Fattoush} Lebanese Tomato Pita Sumac Salad Recipe

Growing up Italian, I thought I knew a thing or two about eating until I went to  Lebanon.

It seemed like there were pre-meals to meals and even in-between meal meals, which meant it was mezze after tabbouleh after fattoush. I left wanting to learn how to cook it all, and I started with this simple, fresh, but never boring {Fattoush} Lebanese Tomato Pita Sumac Salad Recipe made amazing by fabulous tomatoes, pomegranate molasses, and loads and loads of olive oil-soaked pita crisps. Need I say more?
