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!

Thanks for the link, Sar :) I thought you got those spice blend recipes from a book or something, and since I didn't know what it was, I just said it was from you.... because that's where I got it from.

Okay, I have a confession - I'm sorry to mislead. I'm not that good at putting together spices, so I stole this recipe from someone else: http://www.maryjanesfarm.org/farmgirl-connection/ xoxo, Sarah
