  1. I'm looking for a typical Arabic fattoush with pomegranate dressing. Been experimenting lots with pomegranate molasses, sumac, olive oil, vinegar, fresh lemon juice etc but didn't get the result I wanted yet. Could you share your fattoush recipe? Thank you

    1. Fattoush is one of my all time favorite salads. I'm going to film a recipe and post it on the blog with a link to the video very soon, will notify you when I do that.
