Butter Lettuce With Seasonal Vegetables & Za'atar

This all-season fresh salad is great as part of a brunch spread, as it pairs really well with a quiche or eggs. Use the best cucumbers, tomatoes and pepper you can find – this is one of those recipes where you really want to let the ingredients speak for themselves. The za’atar adds interest and gives it a slightly different kick – citrus and tangy.
