This creamy cheese/yogurt spread is made from Greek yogurt. It is Greek yogurt that is strained from excess water in a cheese cloth until the resulting cheese is soft and creamy, similar to cream cheese. This goes great with toast, pita bread or even mixed with a little mint and garlic as an appetizer.
