    Za'atar (or zahtar or zatar) is an earthy Middle Eastern spice blend that can contain a variety of different ingredients such as toasted sesame seeds, marjoram, thyme, cumin, oregano, sumac and sea salt. Each country has its own unique style of za'atar, and each family develops their own mix. Traditionally, it is sprinkled on labneh (yogurt cheese) with olive oil and served with warm bread. It's also mixed into bread dough and baked. Za'atar makes a zesty crust for white fish and meats as well as a delicious vegetable or lentil seasoning.
