Author Notes: For those who are adventurous, this combination of flavors is really delicious! The sweet watermelon goes perfectly with the salty and tangy flavor of za’atar. You can find za’atar at any mediterranean market or you can always make your own.Justforlicks

Serves 6-8

  • 1 Watermelon, cut to serve
  • 1/4 cup sumac
  • 2 tablespoons thyme
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, roasted
  • 2 tablespoons marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  1. In a pan, lightly roast sesame seeds until they are light brown.
  2. To a mortar, add all spices including sesame seeds and salt and grind them down with a pestle. The consistency should be slightly grainy, not powdery.

I love this, too! I put za'atar on just about everything, but I never thought of watermelon!
