Preparation time: 15 minutes
Roll flatbread into logs and slice crosswise into fine ribbons. Heat oil in a large frying pan or wok over a medium high heat. Add bread ribbons and spice blend and stir fry until bread is crispy and toasted. Drain on paper towel.
Combine lemon juice, vinegar, oil for the salad and extra spice in a large salad bowl and season well. Toss through zucchini and red onion and allow to stand for a few minutes for the zucchini to soak up some of the dressing.
Toss through flat bread ribbons, mint leaves and tuna if using and serve immediately.
Note: Baharat is a Lebanse spice blend. To make your own toast each of the listed spices lightly and grind whole spices separately. Allow to cool and combine.
