Yogurt Cheese and Blue Cheese Dip

Diet Type: Low Fat

Cooking Time: Over one hour

Ingredients:

  4 cups non-fat plain yogurt
  1 tablespoon blue cheese
  1 teaspoon lemon zest
  1/2 teaspoon garlic juice
  2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
 
Directions:

Line a colander or strainer with a large cloth napkin, a dish towel or a double layer of cheesecloth. Turn 1 quart non-fat plain yogurt into the colander and set over a bowl to drain. Refrigerate. Let drain 6 hours to overnight, depending how stiff you want the cheese to be. Cheese is "done" when it is the consistency of soft cream cheese. Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, it will keep 2 weeks or more. Makes 2 cups. For the Blue Cheese Dip: Place 1/2 cup of yogurt cheese and remaining ingredients in a food processor. Blend until pale green.
