Ever had guests show up for cocktails on short notice and you’ve had no time to make anything to eat? This recipe requires only 4 ingredients (without the seasonings) and can be prepared in less than 10 minutes. Flatbreads are always a winning solution, since they can be served in a more traditional way with butter, a combination of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or a less traditional way with a sprinkling of za’atar! This has become an instant classic at my house.
