Spring Toasts With Labneh

Visiting the yogurt case is like a taking trip around the world these days: Greek, French, Australian and Icelandic styles, and more. If you are lucky, next to those you will find labneh, the Middle Eastern yogurt so thick and spreadable it is referred to as a cheese. It has a rich texture and a refreshingly tangy flavor -- something like a light sour cream -- and I am officially enamored of it. I eat it by the spoonful on its own or with fruit, use it as a base for dips and dollop it into soups and sauces.
