In this fresh, easy spread, the chile-herb sauce serves as both a dip and a swirl-in for flavoring hummus.
Picnic tips: Roll lettuce in a towel, enclose in a plastic bag, and stash at the top of the cooler so it doesn't get crushed. Add the sauce to the hummus at the picnic.

Cut lettuces lengthwise through core into 1 1/2-in.-wide pieces. Rinse well and pat dry.
Set out all ingredients on a cutting board, including zaatar and green sauce for seasoning. Swirl hummus with a spoon, making indentations; spoon about 2 tbsp. green sauce into indentations, then swirl a little more.
*Look for simit at Turkish restaurants and Middle Eastern bakeries.
