Zaatar Salad from the Garden

One of my favorite ways to use my Zaatar herbs from my garden is by making fresh Zaatar Salad.

A recipe that is so simple, but so tasty and healthy:

  • 1-2 Bunches of Zaatar Herbs (Thymbra Spicata, Summer Savory, etc.)
  • 1 Lemon, Juiced
  • 1 tsp. sumac
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Vinegar (Apple Cider is my favorite)
