Breakfast Fattoush

I love a salad for breakfast in the warmer weather, and this one is a crunchy delight full of textures, flavours and nutritional prowess. Based on a lovely salad of Annabel Crabb’s, this salad is ready to go for a breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Serves: 2-4




  • 1 Lebanese flatbread or pitta bread
  • ¼ iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • ½ cucumber or 1 stick celery, chopped
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • 1 peach, nectarine or orange, sliced
  • Handful coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • Dressing:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp plain yoghurt
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Drizzle a little olive oil over flatbread and cut or break up into pieces.
  3. Bake for about 5 mins or until crisp.
  4. Arrange in large bowl with remaining ingredients and toss gently to combine.
  5. Mix dressing ingredients in small cup and pour over salad.
  6. Add crispy flatbread just before serving.
