When I picked up a jacket my husband had left at our friends' house, she had tucked a small container of zahtar into the bag. Zahtar is a spice blend that originates from the Middle East and is used to sprinkle over dips, deep-fried vegetables and flat breads.
I found a recipe to make my own blend - equal parts sesame seeds, thyme, and sumac with a dash of salt - but, for now, I used my foodie score to season egg salad for sandwiches. Yum!
Zahtar-spiced Egg Salad: hardboiled eggs, peeled and diced; mayonnaise; zahtar.
