Sunday Brunch: Julie Yoder's Fattoush (Lebanese Bread Salad)

TULSA - Fattoush is a popular salad, especially in Lebanon. The great thing about fattoush is that you can add and delete veggies from the recipe according to taste. Instead of pita bread, you can also use French or Italian bread, but it will add additional calories. This makes a great side to any grilled meat.
