Ingredients

2 lb
yogurt, low-fat, plain
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
pepper
2 tsp
oregano, dried
1 tsp
thyme, leaves
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes
1
bay leaf
1 c
olive oil

Step-By-Step

1Mix the yogurt, salt, and pepper and let drain, refrigerated, for 3 days in a cheesecloth-lined colander or a cheesecloth or muslin bag set over a bowl. There must be space underneath the sack to allow the whey to drain.

2Divide the cheese into 2-ounce portions and place on parchment-lined trays. Allow to drain and dry uncovered overnight, refrigerated.

3Combine the remaining ingredients to make marinade. Add the cheese, and marinate 12 to 24 hours before serving.
