Silly over Sumac Dressing!

Updated: Oct 2, 2023

After a lifetime in the food industry, it's always a thrill to add a new flavor to the spice cupboard. This year we fell in love with Sumac, the tart little berry that grows on the Rhus coriaria bush which is native to Turkey.

If you've ever gotten shawarma from a street cart, chances are you have tasted this tangy and delicious flavor blended with cumin and oregano in a creamy dressing. It's one of the most delicious flavors on earth and I've always wanted a jar of that dressing to take home!

After some trial and error we have narrowed down the flavors and come up with delicious recipe that with bring the street cart flavor right to your kitchen.

Sumac Dressing Recipe

1/2 cup mayo

1/2 cup yogurt

1/2 cup whole milk

2 Tbsp parmesan

1/4 cup feta

2 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp sumac

1 tsp garlic salt

1 lemon, zest and juice

Fresh ground pepper

1 sprig fresh mint, minced

Whisk ingredients together and adjust for flavor. Drizzle over grilled chicken, halloumi, cucumber and tomato salad, or drink it straight from the bowl!

Sumac Spiced Chicken

1 tsp sumac

1 tsp whole coriander seed

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp smoked salt

1 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp garlic granules

Rub chicken thoroughly with the spice blend, then brown in oil in skillet. Meanwhile, mix the juice and zest of lemon, 1 clove garlic, pressed, and 1/4 cup olive oil in a baking dish with a cover.
