Similar to chimichurri, salsa verde, pesto, or chermoula, with lots of jalapeno chile, cilantro, parsley, garlic, lemon and olive oil, and the spices cardamom and cumin, giving it a Middle Eastern flavor profile.

What People are saying
Ok this just changed my life and is making my mouth SO HAPPY. O.M.G, first of all, how do they even make this stuff because when you open the jar it’s basically SO FRESH the aroma just smacks you in the face like you just made it yourself in a blender. TBH sometimes I just eat it off a spoon right out of the jar.
Well, this stuff is absolutely delicious and exceeded expectations! So herby and just the right amount of kick, the perfect complement to fish, chicken, or any meat I imagine.
This is an incredible jar of hot sauce in the Middle Eastern sour zhug style. It tastes as if it were made fresh five minutes ago, with an intense, rich herbal flavor.
It’s you favorite middle eastern market or food truck in a jar. If you like zattar and things like that you’ll love this on a pita.
Wow this stuff is so good! I love the brightness of the lemon and the spice of jalapeños. It’s a really great blend to put on sandwiches.
This luscious green sauce is way beyond just spicy. Rich with herbal goodness, a little bit of this green magic works wonders.
