I love love Trader Joes Zhoug sauce and we use it often, but I’m trying to reduce our single use packaging, and this is way better anyway. I finally have notes down so we can make and gift it on our own. I have written about 3 dozen green sauce-ish recipes here, SK Cooking Club etc. – each a little bit different. This one, heavy on the heat and herbs, and a few warm spices. Because it is so warm, I think of it like a concentrate instead of just straight up (ie. putting a dollop in salad dressing or mashing with avocado). Adding just a pinch of sugar and squeeze of lime to balance it. Zhoug is of Yemenite origin, and usually found on tables in Syria and Israel. It truly boosts anything and will certainly be a go-to summer condiment for salads and flatbread and grilled items.

Uses

  • Stir a spoonful into a salad dressing

  • Mix with plain Greek yogurt to make a dip

  • With avocado toast

  • As a protein marinade for any meat, often mixed with some toasted sesame oil and citrus for meat and chicken, or painted on seafood after grilling.

  • Cucumber salad with this, a splash of champagne vinegar, tons of dill, shaved red onion

  • Egg sandwich spread

  • Grilled corn

  • Pasta salad with lots of grilled zucchini, more herbs, baby tomatoes, feta cheese
