I admittedly haven't made this. But in searching around, I'm pretty intrigued by this Chowhound thread: http://chowhound.chow.com.... If you expand the replies for rtms' comment, you'll see they posted Mary Salloum's recipe for Classic Lebanese Dressing from "A Taste of the Mediterranean Vegetarian Style" and noted that they add 1 tsp of sumac to it.

If you don' t mind the additional herbs, some blends of Za'tar make great vinaigrettes . My latest jar from Penzey's has sumac,thyme,sesame seeds,and oregano. I grate the garlic on my microplane, and use both lemon juice ,zest, and cider or white wine vinegars. A torn Romaine ,tomato,and cuke salad holds up well to this dressing. NJOY
