This salad seems to be the essence of spring. It’s light and fresh. Colorful. Za’atar (pronounced zah-tar) is a Middle Eastern spice mixture that is mostly thyme with oregano, marjoram, sesame seeds and some other spices. You can find it at most grocery stores, but I recommend buying it at a local Middle Eastern market.
