  • Summary

    Fattoush is a refreshing Middle Eastern bread-and-vegetable salad. You can blanch all of the beans in the same pot: first the green beans, then the shell beans (but not the other way around, since shell beans release a lot of starch). This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Vegetables" (Clarkson Potter).

    Ingredients

    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1/2 pound green beans or haricots verts, trimmed
    • 3/4 cup shelled fresh shell beans, such as lima or cranberry
    • 3 pitas (each 6 inches)
    • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
    • 1/2 large Vidalia onion, chopped
    • 1 English cucumber, quartered and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 4 ounces feta, crumbled
    • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint, plus more for garnish
    • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette
