healthy okcYou may not know this about me, but I spent some years living abroad and traveling the world when I was in my twenties. I fell in love with many foods- because I love food- including Middle Eastern Cuisine.

Today I’ve decided to share with you a simple but delicious salad. Fattoush is a traditional dish originally from Lebanon, which is where many of the best recipes come from in my opinion. This salad is made with simple ingredients that come together for a fresh, zesty, and healthy addition to any meal.
