Nutritious and refreshing, fattoush salad has long been one of our go-to's when it comes to both salad and Middle Eastern cuisine.
The humble dish features the likes of cherry tomatoes, mixed greens, radishes, as well as roasted or fried pieces of khubz.
If you're a fan of the salad, or would like to try it, here's how you can make your own.
Ingredients are available from Marks & Spencer food halls, with selected lines also on the M&S Food app.
