Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

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 firmer yolks, cook 1 to 3 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. While the water is heating and the eggs are cooking, prepare the chickpeas. 

2

Toast the chickpeas

  • Rinse the chickpeas and pat dry.

In a medium frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chickpeas, season with salt and pepper and the za’atar, and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly crisped and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. 

3

Prep the remaining salad ingredients

  • Zest and juice the lemon into a large bowl.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.

4

Toast the naan

In the same pan used for the chickpeas, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the naan and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season lightly with salt. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Cut the naan into bite-size pieces.

5

Assemble 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, naan, and spiced chickpeas and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

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