Zesty Sumac - Lemon Dressing


4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, from one large, ripe lemon

1 ½ teaspoons fresh garlic, peeled, finely grated

½ teaspoon pomegranate molasses, (use honey if you do not have)

3 grates freshly ground pepper

¼ teaspoon sea salt, more to taste

½ teaspoon Sumac*, more to taste

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ cup extra virgin olive oil



In a medium sized bowl add the first seven ingredients, Lemon juice through oregano.
Mix with a wire whisk, set aside 15 minutes to meld the flavors.
Pour the olive oil in a measuring cup.


Drizzle this into the bowl, slowly at first with the whisk to emulsify.
Stream in the remaining oil until emulsified.


Can be made up yo a week in advance.
Store in a clean glass container in the refrigerator.


* Sumac comes from the berries of a wild bush that grows wild in all Mediterranean areas. Its flavor has lemony notes with sourness and astringency.
The berries are dried and crushed to form a coarse purple-red powder.
