Appetizer, Gluten Free, Salad, Aspect, Summer time

I like love Dealer Joes Zhoug sauce and we use it usually, however I’m attempting to cut back our single use packaging, and that is approach higher anyway. I lastly have notes down so we will make and reward it on our personal. I’ve written about 3 dozen inexperienced sauce-ish recipes right here, SK Cooking Membership and so on. – every just a little bit completely different. This one, heavy on the warmth and herbs, and some heat spices. As a result of it’s so heat, I consider it like a focus as a substitute of simply straight up (ie. placing a dollop in salad dressing or mashing with avocado). Including only a pinch of sugar and squeeze of lime to steadiness it. Zhoug is of Yemenite origin, and often discovered on tables in Syria and Israel. It actually boosts something and will definitely be a go-to summer season condiment for salads and flatbread and grilled gadgets.

  • Cucumber salad with this, a splash of champagne vinegar, tons of dill, shaved purple onion

  • Egg sandwich unfold

  • Grilled corn

  • Pasta salad with a number of grilled zucchini, extra herbs, child tomatoes, feta cheese

For those who make it, go away a remark about the way you used it!


Makes about 10 oz.

You need to use a bit extra oil if you happen to’d like a thinner but richer sauce, one thing nearer to conventional Italian pesto. The beneath will probably be very herb heavy, as I favor it this manner so it may be thinned with citrus for dressings, marinades, smashed with avocado and the like. It can separate a bit which is completely effective and anticipated.

The sauce will final for 1-2 weeks within the fridge. Getting spicier because it sits so heads up!
