Labnah and Walnuts (recipe)

To be honest, I was trying to look for what this dish is called but could not really find it.  However, I did learn this from a Syrian gal and was amazed how simple and really delicious it is to make!

Ingredients:

1 lb. of labnah (basically really condensed yogurt…all the water is evaporated)  can be found in any Middle Eastern store

lots and lots of parsley (flat or the curly looking one)

half an onion chopped finely (green or white, doesn’t matter)

salt

lots of walnuts

extra virgin olive oil

1. Pour out the entire contents of the labnah into a large bowl.

2. Food process the parsley, onions, and walnuts separately.  Make sure the walnuts are not too fine.  Also all of this can be done by hand but will take longer.

3. Fold into the labnah and add salt.  Distribute all the ingredients well.

4.  Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil and serve with warm pita, crackers, use as a spread in a sandwich, chips, on cucumbers or bite-sized vegetables…be creative!
