Zaatar is a Middle Eastern spice blend that has a slight citrus note that goes well with vegetables. Recipe is from Sunset Magazine. Prep time includes both dip and vegetables.
- 8 ounces Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons za'atar spice mix
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 cups vegetables (red & yellow bell peppers, cucumber spears, carrots, broccoli florets, and lettuce leaves)
- Mix together yogurt, zaatar, lemon zest and juice. If you like it thinner, add 2 tablespoons water.
- Chill at least 2 hours or overnight to develop the flavors. Serve with vegetables and hummus.
This made a very welcome light and refreshing lunch today. I had everything on hand and it was so simple to make. Used green pepper, mushrooms cut in half, small organic carrots, celery, broccoli bits and tiny grape tomatoes. The dip is delicious and would be good on a chicken sandwich too. :D
