Za'atar is made from a blend of dried herbs that vary from recipe to recipe. Often it will be some combination of sumac, thyme, sesame seeds, marjoram, oregano and salt. Sumac is tart and lemony, a flavor that contrasts sharply with the earthy flavors of the other dried herbs. The result is a unique and addictive blend of flavors.

More About Za'atar
Pizza and flatbread aren't the only things that za'atar tastes good on. Mix up a big batch and keep it in your spice drawer to use as a seasoning or marinade for chicken and red meat. Sprinkle it on roasted vegetables or whisk za'atar with olive oil and lemon juice to make salad dressing.
