What’s summer without eating food outside with friends? The recipe for this month is simple, delicious, and customizable. A perfect way to take advantage of summer harvest’s fresh rewards. The main component of this dish is Labneh, a mediterranean soft cheese, much like ricotta, and is extremely versatile. It can be used in mezze platters like this, or can even be used in sweet dishes like olive oil cake. It binds the other elements together into a fantastic party (or really anytime) dish.
