This recipe is a slightly healthier and higher protein version of a Fattoush salad, which traditionally is a Levantine bread salad made from toasted pieces of pitta bread served with mixed greens and other vegetables, such as radishes and tomatoes.
I had the pleasure of making this recipe when I was down in London filming with Quorn and it really is so delicious! This Quorn based Fattoush Salad is ideal for a Tupperware lunch or for a picnic in the park (weather permitting!).
Do let me know if you try it and what you think!
