Dukkah Fattoush Salad

Updated: Apr 18

Recipe by Chef Abraham Risho

“I tried to do a fattoush salad once years ago, but it didn’t turn out right. Yup, it happens. But this one… it came out fantastic, especially using all local squash & tomatoes makes a huge difference. And the chickpeas…. I could probably just eat hand-fulls of these tasty little treats!!

This is the great end-of-summer/fall dish. I love it because I get to grill stuff! Grilling in the fall is wonderful if you have a nice, warm charcoal grill to stand next to when it's cold outside."
