Za’atar Spiced Veggie Wrap
with cucumber and tomato salad
Mediterranean-inspired flavors are the key to this simple, colorful meal that is packed with vegetables. If you made a double batch of herb yogurt sauce earlier in the week, the wraps will come together extra fast.

Not sure I loved the Za'atar on the pork. Ended up sort of dry, but we still liked it. The tabbouleh needed more flavor (added more salt and lemon). Overall, solid meal.0 Helpful
I used too much za'atar, but it was still good. The cauliflower tabbouleh was delicious. I did add the herb yogurt sauce to it - which I think was needed and yummy.0 Helpful
I love za'atar! So tasty. I used farro instead of cauliflower in the tabbouleh and that was a great sub.0 Helpful
Pretty good. Remember to add salt to the pork with the za’atar. Definitely could use a sauce (I didn’t have any yogurt sauce). I liked the tabbouleh salad after adding extra lemon, olive oil and lots of salt.0 Helpful
Loved the tabouleh!0 Helpful
The wraps were okay. I ended up using some of the leftover chicken from earlier in the week instead of the beans, and that added some nice flavors. I really didn't like the side salad. Raw shallots and parsley are not a great combo.0 Helpful
