Quality Sumac

Fattoush is a sumac-seasoned garden salad

that includes toasted or fried pita bread cubes and is dressed with olive oil, lemon juice and pomegranate molasses. Here is the recipe in case you don’t know how to make it…

PS you just really have to try my DS Organic Sumac, I am always very bothered by the quality of Sumac in the market!! Mostly dyed with red colour and releases the dyes into the food, also no matter how much you use, you can hardly ever taste it! This is mainly because most of the sumac found in the market is mixed with ground chickpeas and ground wheat to increase the yield. The dye is used to cover that. However, that does not help those people with gluten/wheat intolerance!

Try mine and see for yourself what real pure Sumac smells, tastes and looks like, you will never go back to the low grade stuff in the market! Try it and see!

Keeping with the salad theme, I have included for you a video recipe for salad in a jar that I found and loved!
