Oh man, I love seeing the Kalustyan's bag of sumac in the picture. NYC represent!

And since it was our weekly "try a new thing" dish we had to buy a lot of stuff we didn't have on hand which is making me gripe more.

But I'm not familiar at all with the dish it's based on, fattoush salad. Maybe it's just a type of dish I'm not going to like? Dunno.
Texture-wise, the vegetables in fattoush salad are supposed to be pretty soft, so maybe if you didn't cook the squash enough, it might be off. Flavor-wise, fattoush salad rarely has a vegetable as bitter as brussels sprouts, so maybe ease up on them?
