This sounds good, and as I understand it, Lebanese in origin. Now before you run out and gather sumac from a bush in your yard, DO NOT do this! Buy sumac dried from a Middle Eastern market, not all sumac is the same, much in the US is poisonous (there is my disclaimer), USE ONLY store bought dried sumac. On my to cook list and soon. This is presented in two ways, the first way is sumac at the end, the second way is to flavor the oil with sumac, please let me know your comments.
