Fresh Middle Eastern Salad
Fresh salad from the Middle East makes a tasty low-carb starter!
This is a fresh salad that is popular in the Middle East. Because the salad has a different name in each country,
I simply referred to it as Middle Eastern salad. The za'atar spices are the most important seasoning. Za'atar's main ingredient is a type of wild dried oregano with thyme and oregano flavors. After the herbs have been dried, they are finely ground and combined with sumac (dried sour berries) and sesame seeds.
The end result is a delectable and fresh spice blend. The za'atar herbs complement the cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, and olive oil perfectly.
Serve this fresh salad as a summer side dish with your barbecue. After preparing, the Middle Eastern salad can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. If you have any questions about the recipe or the ingredients, please leave a comment.
