Watermelon with Za’atar

A summer treat that’s cold and sweet.

Some will like it, some will not
But do, at least,  just give it a shot.

Lemony, salty, nutty too,
And really, really good to chew. 🙂

For those who are adventurous, this combination of flavors is really delicious!  The sweet watermelon goes perfectly with the salty and tangy flavor of za’atar. You can find za’atar at any mediterranean market or you can always make your own.

Za’atar Recipe

1/4 cup sumac

2 tablespoons thyme

1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds

2 tablespoons marjoram

1 teaspoon coarse salt

In a pan, lightly roast sesame seeds until they are light brown. To a mortar, add all spices including sesame seeds and salt and grind them down with a pestle. The consistency should be slightly grainy, not powdery.  Sprinkle on the watermelon and serve.
