Fattoush is a classic Lebanese dish. It is often eaten by itself as a starter or light lunch. Saumac is an essential ingredient. It is a spice that is made from the dried, powdered berries of the sumac tree. It was my first time trying Saumac and I really enjoyed it, next time I would add one more teaspoon of the Saumac. This was used as a side salad for Shish Taouk Toum – Grilled / BBQ Chicken With Garlic Sauce . This recipe comes from a book called “The Lebanese Cookbook” by Hussien Dekmak
