Yogurt cheese spread

Ever heard of 'yogurt cheese'? I've not, until now.

The below recipe is adding on to a basic yogurt cheese and making it into a scrummy dip or spread.

  • 2 tbsp chopped nuts
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 tsp grated orange or lemon peel
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 garlic clove, mashed
  • a pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  1. to make the yogurt cheese, drain 500g plain yogurt in a coffee filter-lined colander set over a bowl in the fridge overnight
  2. combine cheese with all the ingredients
  3. chill it for up tp 3 hrs
  4. serve at room temperature as a spread for toasted bread. Accompany with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and olives as toppings, and a sprig of dill if you will.
