September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (71 votes)

Beans add protein to this tasty riff on the classic Middle Eastern salad fattoush, made with lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, mint and pita bread.

"Delish! The beans complimented the greens very well, better than I thought. I loved the dressing too. Definately will make it again, without the mint though. "

A refreshing and quick salad!

Using canned Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained made this salad so quick and easy. I added the dressing to the beans and tomatoes first to give them more flavor. Cumin flavor was just enough with 1/2 tsp ground cumin. I omitted the parsley.

Who would think that feta, cumin and mint would taste so good together;

Gee, I don't know. Perhaps

Gee, I don't know. Perhaps anyone who has eaten middle eastern food.

Fresh Crisp Flavors

Really loved this recipe, although I omitted the lettuce and made it more of a dip with the pitas so I could eat it as left overs. Also did not mix the pita crisps with it until I was ready to serve. Will definitely make this again.

Bold flavors

This salad was good, but way too much cumin! I would use much less cumin and less mint. The lemon juice and mint were a refreshing taste. Not sure if I would make this again

Bold flavors
Confusing tastes

I really enjoyed this salad. I think I would omit the cumin next time. I felt like I was eating a taco salad with the cumin and pinto beans but then it had a middle eastern feel when you tasted the mint, feta and cucumber. A bit to much going on.

So fresh and delicious

I served it with brown rice instead of the pita chips and used the Moroccan-Spiced Lemon Dressing with it. Also added a little red onion and left out the mint. Delicious!

Fresh, quick, delicious
