13 Ways to Use Labneh, The Israeli Yogurt Dip You Need

From breakfast to dessert, you will be eating labneh all day.

Just in case you aren’t already madly in love with labneh, let me educate you: Labneh (often spelled labaneh or labne) is a crazy delicious, thick, tangy Middle Eastern yogurt that you can easily make at home using just yogurt and salt. It’s perfect alone with some thick triangles of pita for dipping, but it is also incredibly versatile: Make it sweet, make it savory, keep it super simple or add dollops on top of slowly simmered shakshuka.

I really love labneh, and I know you will too.
