Tips

Tip: To make 2 cups low-fat labneh, line a large fine-mesh sieve with four layers of cheesecloth. Set over a bowl deep enough to leave at least 3 inches between the bottom of the sieve and the bowl. Spoon in 4 cups low-fat plain yogurt. Refrigerate until the yogurt is quite thick and at least 1 cup of liquid has drained into the bowl, 12 to 24 hours. (Discard the liquid.)

To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
