How to Make Fresh Wild Thyme Salad

A Salad of Intense Flavor

and Strong Health Benefits

Fresh Thyme Salad

This is our Lebanese Zaatar Salad, made of the same fresh Thyme that we turn into our famous dry Zaatar of our Man’oush and Zaatar Breadsticks.

The Lebanese Wild Thyme of the Zaatar Salad

As I previously explained, the dry Zaatar in a combination of dry herbs and spices with the Thyme being its main component.

The Lebanese Wild Thyme Salad is not as common nationwide as it is in the North of Lebanon where it is almost always present in the Mezza, and as regular on the Northern meals.

Wild zaatar

Another type of Lebanese Wild Thyme, which we use as a Salad add-on, and not as main Salad component due to its powerful fragrance.

This particular strong fragrant herb grows in the wilderness and by the roads of the valleys and mountains.

The Recipe is simple. We use the thyme leaves with some of the upper stems since they are rich in nutrients. We add slices of onion, Sumac, lemon juice, and Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.

This salad has a strong lemony taste to it. Some have been added tomatoes to it, which I believe is to tone down the powerful taste of the Wild Thyme.

Enjoy it! Life is Good!
