Fattoush and The Macmillan Calendar

I’m always happy to contribute to anthologies, books and publications that support recognised  charities.

Macmillan Cancer Support is no exception. They do a wonderful job of looking after cancer sufferers and their families providing ‘practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care’. 

I was asked to contribute a recipe to the new 2013 calendar which features 12 delicious recipes all contributed by Macmillan staff and supporters.

The recipe I chose is featured in ‘June’ and is for one of the first dishes I learned to make when I went to Damascus in the 1970’s.

It’s called Fattoush, a traditional Syrian salad that has a sharp tangy dressing made from olive oil, lemon juice and mint.  Hard, leftover or toasted pitta bread is sprinkled over the top and adds a  crunchy contrast to the silky salad leaves.

To read the recipe, go to the Macmillan blog at http://shop.macmillan.org.uk/blog/2013-calendar-recipes-fattoush.html

And when you have done that, scroll down to the bottom, follow the link and buy the calendar!
