Za'atar is a middle eastern spice blend, which contains the herb, dried crushed thyme, dried sumac, and salt. You can easily simply make it from scratch or you can find it at most Middle Eastern stores and even on amazon. here is my favorite brand I tried other than the homemade.

I love pistachios in Za'atar Blend. I still remember my mom used to toast the pistachios and sesame seeds, and crush the pistachios and add it to the Za'atar bowl with some fresh olive oil. YUM!
