Sunday Supper Suggestion, Mediterranean Cottage Cheese Salad with Za'atar

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Looking for ways to eat more vegetables, led me to this salad. It is delicious and can be made at a moments notice from ingredients on hand. Paired with some whole grain bread and a piece of fresh fruit, it will also make a wonderful lunch or light supper.

With spring and summer coming on, you will want to remember this salad. When served, offer additional Za'atar seasoning so folks can add more of the delicious flavor to their serving, I did. The herby/toasted sesame flavor is really good.

Mediterranean Cottage Cheese Salad with Za'atar

This salad calls for Za'atar, which is a spice blend. I did not find on my spice shelf, but it is very easy to make, so I have included a homemade version, let's start with the Za'atar.......

adapted from, the world wide web
makes about 1/4 cup

1 T toasted sesame seeds
1 T marjoram leaves
1 T thyme leaves
1 T oregano leaves
2 T sumac
3/4 t salt

Using a mortar and pestle, coarsely grind sesame seeds and place is a small jar. Separably grind the each of the herbs, placing each into the same jar. Add the sumac and salt, cap and shake to combine.
