Sun Basket is proud to source the organic ingredients indicated below. On the rare occasion we are unable to meet our organic promise, we'll put a note in your bag.
  • 2 whole grain naan flatbreads
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon za’atar
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1 organic cucumber
  • 3 ounces organic grape or Sungold tomatoes
  • 1 organic romaine heart or other lettuce
  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh mint
  • Fattoush dressing base (apple cider vinegar - honey)
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled feta

Chef's Tip

If you’re looking for an easier way to peel the eggs, use a serrated knife to cut the cooked eggs in half lengthwise (shell and all!) and scoop out each half with a spoon.

Ingredient IQ

Za’atar is the name of both a spice blend and a fresh herb that tastes a bit like thyme crossed with oregano. The spice blend only rarely contains dried za’atar; ours includes sumac, fennel seeds, sesame seeds, and dried thyme. We love to sprinkle it on everything from flatbreads and hard-cooked eggs to avocado toast.

Wash produce before use


Toast the flatbreads and chickpeas

Heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Cut each flatbread into bite-size pieces.
  • Rinse the chickpeas. In a small bowl, toss the chickpeas with the za’atar and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the flatbread pieces in an even layer on one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], drizzle with 1 to 2 teaspoons [2 to 3 tsp] oil, and season with salt and pepper. Spread the spiced chickpeas on the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan] and toast in the oven until the chickpeas are warmed through and the flatbread is lightly browned and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes.
While the flatbreads and chickpeas toast, prepare the eggs.


Cook the eggs

Bring a small sauce pot of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes for soft-cooked (for hard-cooked eggs, cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs.
While the eggs cook, prepare the salad ingredients.


Prep the remaining salad ingredients

  • Zest and juice the lemon into a large bowl.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into enough ¼-inch-thick half-moons to measure 3 cups [6 cups].
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.


Make the salad

To the bowl with the lemon zest and juice, stir in the fattoush dressing base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cucumber, tomatoes, romaine, mint, flatbreads, and spiced chickpeas and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.



Transfer the salad to individual bowls. Top with the eggs, garnish with the feta, and serve.
