The consumption of dates usually precedes Iftar. During Ramadan, it is said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) broke his fast with dates and camel milk. Fibres, sugars, slow carbs, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B6 are abundant in dates.


Nutrition is an integral part of Ramadan, and the fresh vegetables in this famous Lebanese salad are very healthy. Many would fry leftover pita scraps in a little olive oil for added flavour and out it this salad and that's never a bad idea. Pita bread tossed with any in-season vegetables certainly make for a fulfilling and healthy meal.
