Sumac is a spice that’s widely used in the Middle East, adding a welcome tang to all sorts of dishes. Bet you didn’t know, though, that wild sumac is grown in the Gaspé region of Quebec!

Here’s a simple salad to introduce you to this “local” spice, with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers topped with our delicious Sea Salt & Pepper Active Blend. Enjoy it with a scoop of ricotta cheese, as in the recipe – or try it as a super side dish for barbecued meat or fish.
