Za'atar or Zahtar - Spice Mix of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping. From June 2012 Vegetarian Times. Lemony from sumac, grassy from thyme and oregano, nutty from sesame... perfect served with olive oil and bread for dipping. Sumac powder is available at Greek grocers and online; in a pinch, most people substitute lemon zest, but sumac is not as tart.

This was great. It was used to make Recipe #142472. The bread was a hit with guests yesterday evening. So simple and used things I keep on hand.
