    Manami's Note:

    A savory Middle Eastern spice mix, zaatar typically includes sesame seeds, thyme, marjoram, and sumac, that was sent to me by my sister from Zamouri Spice. The spice can be found at Middle Eastern markets or gourmet shops. It is usually sprinkled on pita bread and coupled with strained labneh (yogurt). We served these to some visiting DR's and was enjoyed by all! Sunset Magazine was where I found these great recipes.
