Fattoush salad originated in the Levant, which pretty much means Lebanon and the surrounding area, and has been tremendously popular for centuries, and for good reason! The Lebanese clearly know that croutons are what takes a salad to the next level. We tried to make our croutons a bit healthier by using whole wheat pita bread and baking instead of frying.

And don't forget to impress the crowd by dressing up your salad with some blingy slice cucumbers and radishes.

Now THAT is a fancy salad.
