    Chef Amy Riolo demonstrates how to make a traditional fattoush salad.

    Amy Riolo: Fattoush is a Lebanese and Syrian salad that consists of delicious cucumber and tomato salad, tossed with crunchy toasted pita bread pieces and dressed with a pomegranate molasses dressing.

    Well start by combining a diced cucumber with four diced tomatoes and a thinly sliced onion. Then well add in a piece of pita bread thats been toasted and chopped and stir everything to combine.

    To make our pomegranate molasses dressing well start by adding to tablespoons of pomegranate molasses and we will whisk in the juice of one lemon. Well season with the pinch of salt and pepper, and then I'm going to drizzle in while I'm whisking a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil.

    Probably now and then you want to stop and whisk and just make sure that everything is getting incorporated and emulsified. With the dressing as thick and smooth you can drizzle it over the salad, left over steak slices or shredded rotisserie chicken would make a good addition to this salad. Well toss ones more to combine and now we can serve our salad immediately.

    Here we have our fattoush salad, perfect for your next barbeque or picnic. Enjoy!
