Fattoush + Cherry Crumble

Last week I saw a recipe for Fattoush and when I ran across another one yesterday I decided to make it. Fattoush is a salad that uses seasonal vegetables and stale flatbread as a base. I improvised and just used what I had - spinach, radishes, cucumbers, spring onions, chickpeas, and pita bread. I made a dressing out of tahini and Greek yogurt with a bit of lemon. 

For dessert I also improvised and made a one-person crumble with some frozen cherries I had stored away in the freezer.
