Ingredients

  • 1 (32 ounce) container of yogurt (works best with whole or 2%)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Garnish:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons za'atar seasoning

Instructions

In a small bowl, add salt to yogurt and mix.

Line a fine-mesh strainer with cheesecloth and place over the top of a medium-sized bowl.

Spoon the yogurt into the strainer with cheesecloth and wrap the sides of the cheesecloth over the yogurt to protect it.

Store in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours (the liquid whey will drain into the bowl).

Discard the liquid and move cheese into a serving dish.

Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with za'atar seasoning.
