What is Za'atar?
Za'atar (zaatar) is a mixture of sumac, sesame seed and herbs frequently used in the Middle East and Mediterranean areas.
It is often mixed with olive oil and spread on bread; sometimes this is done at the table, other times the mix is spread on the bread rounds which are then baked.
Za'atar also serves as a seasoning to sprinkle on vegetables, salads, meatballs or kebabs
