Labneh is a fresh cheese popular in the Middle East and becoming more and more popular in Australia. It is made by straining yoghurt to remove the whey, leaving behind a versatile ingredient with the consistency of cream cheese and the tang of yoghurt. It can be bought in good grocery stores, but it is also super easy to make at home. And, it makes a fantastic, fancy looking dip, perfect for a group of friends in need of something little to whet their appetite for lunch. This is my Labneh with Calabrian Chiles and Fresh Herbs. Dip can be made up to 8 hours ahead, covered and refrigerated.
