A schmear of hummus creates the base for thin slices of Persian cucumbers, which have a superior skin-to-flesh ratio compared to the greenhouse kind. You’ll then finish it off with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of za’atar spice mix. The ingredients in za’atar vary, but this Middle Eastern staple generally includes dried oregano, thyme, sumac, and sesame seeds. It’s worth snagging a jar for its ability to add a quick hit of flavor to almost any savory dish. P.S. For a little heat, finish the toast with chili flakes, or substitute a spicy hummus for the plain.
