A fresh & nutritious supper, ideal after a day in the garden, easily put together and utterly delicious. We have finished this dish with the spice, sumac. A now familiar presence in our supermarkets, this Middle Eastern spice grows on low bushes in arid rocky landscapes; the clusters of red berries have been dried and ground for centuries in Europe. Its lemony flavour and vibrant colour add a tangy twist to salads, grilled meat and fish ... use liberally.
