Zahtar is the name of a sesame, herb and spice mix, used as a condiment in Arabic cooking but it is also the generic name for a family of Middle Eastern herbs that include oregano, thyme and savory.
The condiment is generally prepared using ground dried thyme, oregano, marjoram, or a combination, mixed with sesame seeds, dried sumac, salt, as well as other spices and is popular throughout the Middle East.
It is commonly eaten with flat bread, which is dipped in olive oil and then zahtar. It is often combined with a little olive oil and spread on rounds of flat bread, then eaten for breakfast.
