Lebanese Yogurt Cheese with Za'Atar and Olives

Yield:
Serves 6
Ingredients
  • 1 quart goat's-milk yogurt
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Za'atar herb blend
  • 24 Kalamata olives
  • 1 bunch small radishes, trimmed
  • Pita bread, cut into wedges, warmed
Directions

Line a sieve with cheesecloth. If the cheesecloth is loosely woven (most supermarket brands are), use a triple thickness. Pour the yogurt into the sieve, then gather the edges of the cheesecloth and tie into a bag. Hang the bag over the sink or over a bowl to catch the drippings. Let drain for 8 hours.

Turn the soft, creamy cheese out onto a platter. Season the surface with salt to taste, drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle generously with za'atar. Surround the cheese with the olives and radishes. Serve with the warm pita bread wedges.
