Za’atar is an aromatic eastern Mediterranean spice blend that is used as both a seasoning and a condiment.

Ezme is a wonderful Turkish dish made with the ripest of tomatoes, which give it a deep, sweet flavour to contrast with the fiery kick of chillies and the acidity given to the dish by vinegar and pomegranate molasses.

I first tasted this wonderfully fresh salad years ago in a Lebanese restaurant and then recreated my own version.
