Pita Bread Salad with Cucumbers, Cherry Tomatoes, and Fresh Herbs

Published September 1, 1995.

Why this recipe works:

For our bread salad recipes, we recycled good-quality day-old bread to create Mediterranean-style dishes. We found that sourdough or a sturdy peasant bread, including pita bread, was needed for a good bread salad recipe. Airy, unsubstantial bread became soggy very quickly.

This simple version of fattoush is dressed with the juice of fresh lemons instead of vinegar, which gives the salad a lovely, refreshing tartness. While draining the cucumbers is an extra step, it keeps the salad from becoming soggy.
