A "dillyicious" treat!
Updated February 20, 2007

Ingredients

  • 4 containers (8 ounces each) plain fat-free yogurt*
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill weed or 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Crackers, bagel chips or French bread slices, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Line 6-inch strainer with coffee filter or double-thickness cheesecloth. Place strainer in bowl. Mix all ingredients; pour into strainer. Cover strainer and bowl; refrigerate at least 12 hours.
  • 2
    Unmold onto plate. Garnish with freshly ground pepper and additional chopped fresh dill weed if desired. Serve with crackers.

  • Dill weed has an ancient reputation for being a good luck symbol, medicinal aid and aphrodisiac.
  • For a special presentation, pack the yogurt cheese into a heart-shaped coeur à la crème mold rather than a strainer. Because these molds have fewer drainage holes, you'll need to refrigerate the cheese for an additional 6 hours.
