  2. Chopped mint, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and crushed pepper.
  3. Sumac, fresh oregano, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, crushed pepper, chopped garlic

Where Does the Origin of Fattoush Salad Come From?

Originally, it was from Lebanon.  The fattoush got its name when the local people learned the combination of ingredients. And used to make the salad and combined them to come up with a delicious salad. And it called one of the Lebanese salad.

The place of origin may also be important because this can greatly affect the taste of the salad. If you go to a French restaurant, for instance, you will hardly find a salad that is not French.

Even if the country itself is relatively new, its culture and history have infused the creation of many fine dining establishments and the dishes are accordingly prepared.

On the other hand, if you go to a Middle Eastern or Asian restaurant, there is no doubt that the original fattoush recipe would be different, as most Middle Easterners do not have their own landmass and their food traditions are more of a family of regional variation than a national one.
