Fresh Cheese Made From Yogurt


  • 2 cups yogurt
  • 1/2 t. salt


  • Muslin sack or several layers of cheesecloth made into a bag
  • Large bowl

Combine yogurt and salt. Pour into a muslin sack, tie up, and suspend over a large bowl. Let drain overnight. The bowl will catch the dripping liquid. In the morning, discard the water. Unwrap the cheese and use as a spread on pita or form into small balls and serve with olive oil and chopped fresh mint or with black olives.

Makes 1/2 cup
