Different from other yogurt dips I have made...the cream cheese really makes it smooth and delectable...Old and young loved it..

Normally cream cheese is not one of the ingredients, but it can work to firm watery yogurt used in Europe/Usa etc.

My Turkish friend makes it with Olive Oil, chillis, salt & pepper to taste. The best and freshest Greek or homemade yoghurt; quality Olive Oil and Feta are ideal. We love it!

Wow and wow! I made this over the weekend and simply loved it! I make my own yogurt cheese quite often and enjoy coming across new ways to use it. I know I will be making it again and often. I didn’t bother with the cream cheese, just didn’t feel it was a necessary ingredient. Thanks for sharing.
