Reem Assil's Labneh
Looking for the perfect dip with pita bread or fruits? Labneh, a Middle Eastern dish made from strained yogurt might be the answer to your prayers. Made of yogurt strained through cheesecloth then drizzled with olive oil and za'atar, labneh has about half the fat and calories of regular cream cheese and can be used as spread on bagels, dip for fruit and vegetables ... just in case that pita bread isn't handy. Here is James Beard-nominated chef Reem Assil's recipe.
Yield: 3 cups
8 cups of yogurt
1 tsp of salt (Reem uses kosher salt)
Extra virgin olive oil
* You will also need a piece of linen, muslin or several layers of cheese cloth for straining
