 We really do love eating pita bread with everything FATTOUSH RECIPE

We really do love eating pita bread with everything, even salad! Fattoush is a delicious salad with toasted pita bread, sumac, and other veggies. Eva loves making fattoush for parties and get-togethers on hot summer days. For this recipe feel free to add or take out any veggies. What makes fattoush different from a usual salad is the pita chips and sumac, so make sure to include those!

Ingredients:

1 garlic clove
Lettuce (any type, Eva uses romaine and spring mix)
1 scallion diced or 1/4 cup diced white onion
1 cucumber sliced
2 beefsteak tomatoes diced
1 large pepper or 2-3 small peppers diced
16 spearmint leaves chopped
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2-3 radishes sliced
5 tablespoons of olive oil
3 teaspoons of sumac (found in most Middle Eastern stores)
Salt
Pepper
4 teaspoons of lemon juice

Instructions:

1. Toast pita by using a toaster panggangan or regular oven.  Once toasted break into small bite size pieces

2. Mince garlic at the bottom of a bowl with a dash of salt.  If you can’t mince the garlic, finely chop the garlic on a cutting board and press it down with the back of a spoon – transport to bowl

3. Add all veggies to bowl with olive oil, sumac, lemon juice, pepper and toss well *taste prior to adding lemon juice – sumac has a lemon taste to it (depending on how fresh it is) and it might be enough without the lemon juice

4. Right before serving, add toasted pita and toss. Toasted pita can also be served as a side for those who don’t like it tossed into their salad

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
