    1 32 oz container of Greek yogurt
    approx. 1 tbsp of salt

Directions

After opening container of yogurt, put in about 1tbsp of salt. Stir well. Then, line your colonder with about 3-4 sheets of paper towel. Pour the yogurt from it's original container into the colonder. Set the colonder on top of the smaller bowl and cover the yogurt with plastic wrap. Set in the fridge overnight. In the morning, there will be liquid in the bowl. Dump that out. The yogurt in the colonder will be thick--that is the labneh. Put it in a tupper ware container, smooth it out and drizzle olive oil on top. Dip toast, pita, whatever and enjoy!!!
