Last month for book club we read Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family and Forgiveness, which chronicles food writer and blogger Sasha Martin’s attempt to make a meal from every country in the world. She starts with Afghanistan and ends with Zimbabwe. In our book club the host always picks the book. We usually read fiction but we occasionally throw in a memoir for good measure. Our host picked this book because she loves food, both cooking and eating it. She made a variety of recipes featured in the book for us to enjoy. One was Fattoush Salad. I could not stop eating it. It is bursting with flavor and has lots of lively acidity to brighten your palate. It contains no meat but you could easily add grilled chicken or a can of drained chickpeas to give it more heft. Also, don’t let the name throw you. It is a simple salad with ingredients you can easily find in your grocery store.
