The Middle Eastern spice blend za'atar (which combines sumac, oregano, sesame, hyssop, and other spices) flavors this simple cilantro-and-garlic dip. It's ideal served alongside roasted meats, or slathered on fresh-baked pita. This recipe first appeared in our October issue along with Katie Robbins's story Season of Rejoicing.
