Za'atar, a Middle Eastern spice mix of wild thyme, sumac, and toasted sesame seeds, tops chewy flatbread in this iconic Lebanese snack. Chef Fouad Kassab's family serves it around the autumn olive harvest in Lebanon, when the bread is flooded with a generous amount of new-season olive oil before being topped with juicy tomato wedges and fresh mint. This recipe first appeared in our October 2014 issue with the story Home for the Harvest.
