This aromatic spice blend is popular in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Sumac gives Za'atar a tart taste, the oregano and thyme add warmth and depth and the sesame seeds give a lovely earthiness. Rub on meats and vegetables, include in marinades and salad dressing, mix with olive oil and apply to breads before baking. See recipe suggestion below for quick marinated olives with herbaceous Za'atar and olive oil.

Za'atar is a versatile spice blend that works on almost anything. In this recipe, we like to choose olives such as Castelvetrano or Mission for a buttery flavor, and Kalamata or Manzanilla for stronger, more tart flavor.

Za'atar Marinated Olives
1 cup of cured Olives, drained.
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Za'atar

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and enjoy. Best when marinated overnight and brought to room temperature before serving. Excess oil can be used on salad or enjoyed with bread.
