Fattoush Salad

To go with Armenian potato salad, baba ganoush, and lavash, my mom and I went off of Joumana's recipe to make a fattoush salad.  We skipped the raw peppers and reduced the sumac, and we used lavash, garlic powder, and watercress rather (respectively) pita, fresh garlic, and purslane.  I find that garlic powder is mush milder and easier to mix when you're making dressings.

Fattoush Salad

1 head of romaine lettuce (or any other lettuce), torn in pieces
a bunch of watercress
green onions, thinly sliced
a handful of chopped Italian parsley and a handful of fresh mint

some grape tomatoes, sliced
a few radishes, sliced
pieces of pita or lavash, tossed with olive oil and salt and toasted
2 small lemons, juiced
1/2 c of extra-virgin olive oil
1 generous TB of sumac
2 tsp garlic powder
