There are many easy ways that you can start incorporating Za’atar spice into your meals! You can start with sprinkling za’atar on hummus or salad, for example. Add a dash on your olive-oil fried egg…Delicious! Or in this simplest of Middle Eastern appetizers called “zayt and za’atar,” which literally translates to olive oil and za’atar. You take a small piece of warm pita bread, dip it in extra virgin olive oil then in the za’atar spice, and eat!

    I had seen recipes using this spice over the past year and after seeing the ingredients, looked great and bought a bottle. So glad I did! Wonderful mild taste added to cooking. Purchased this specifically to make your recipe for Melitzanosalata!

    I ordered this spuce after watching you make so many recipes using it. It is so lovely. Earthy, slightly salty with a touch of lemon. This will be a regular in my spice drawer.

      Salt is used as part of the milling process, so there is always a small residual amount. It is not an ingredient that is added to make it saltier. For za’atar, there is 5.43 mg of sodium per 1/4 teaspoon. Hope that helps!

      Our spices are bottled fresh just before they arrive to our warehouse and we get new batches every month. We only order spices from our supplier in small batches to ensure the highest quality. Once bottled, they can maintain their freshness for up to two years. But even after that, our spices will still provide great flavor.

      Good info –
      I prepare meals for my nephew who has kidney failure
      Info on sodium and potassium content in foods is of utmost importance.

    Finally found it.

    Tina Jones (verified owner)

    This is an awesome spice. I have been going to a greek restaurant for years and love their greek salad. This is the spice they put in their dressing. As soon as smelled it from the bottle knew it was it. This is also so good sprinkled in oil to dip bread in. Love it..

      Yay! So glad you found it right here! We agree, this za’atar is great for dipping with some bread and oil. Our kids do that with pita bread as an afternoon snack. Thanks for your positive feedback!
