    Mirj's Note:

    A very Middle Eastern spice mix, I use it in almost everything that has even a hint of the Mediterranean. Sprinkle this over a plate of hummous, dip some pita in olive oil and za'atar, have some lemonade with mint and you're in paradise.

      Please, please try this! It's delicious. I make it without the onions and put it in a small dish on its own next to another small dish with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. A Pile of fresh bread,(pitta bread, french bread anything you like)and dip a torn off piece of bread into the oil and then into the za'atar and eat! Swish it down with a cup of tea. Superb snack!

      Tried this last night, I cooked rice, added olive oil and some of this and tumeric, it was good. DD says it tasted like the rice at Cafe Cedar, I favorite Middle Eastern restaurant.

      This makes a wonderful authentic seasoning for Middle East cooking. Zaatar means simply thyme in Morocco as we have no spice blends. So, we use the same word for a very different meaning. I love to use this when making Lebanese dishes. Thank you Mirj!
