Herbaceous, exotic, ancient with notes of nut & heat, Za’atar, has transported diners to Lebanese blonde summer for millenia. Sprinkle on salads, pizza, olives, bread, pasta and into olive oil for dipping.
While very growing increasingly popular in the US, our Lebanese grandmother, gold bless her soul, would slap someone who tried to serve her the Za'atar found in on shelves of most grocery stores in the US and in most "Mediterranean" or "Middle Eastern" restaurants. Leila Provisions Za'atar is hands down the best blend of this business Lebanese spice you will find. It is herbaceous, exotic and salty with a hint of nuttiness and heat. Sprinkle onto salads, into olive oil for dipping in bread to be transported to Lebanese blonde summers of my grandmother's youth.
