Cook's Tip

Greek yogurt is strained, making it richer and thicker than the yogurt you probably have been using. It is much like the yogurt cheese you may have made, but it doesn’t require any time and effort. Greek yogurt is now readily available in specialty food stores as well as natural food stores, high-end supermarkets, and the health section of many other supermarkets.
