Middle Eastern Spice Blend

MIddle Eastern Spice Blend

This is one of my favorite spice blends! Our favorite way to use this is to blend it with some oil and citrus juice to use as a marinade for grilled chicken skewers! It would also be great in a rice pilaf or adding it to some olive oil and dip pita bread into it. Yum!
