Beautiful desert! I love anything yoghurty and this was no exception. A hint from my hubby for draining yoghurt without a cheesecloth - just cut some vertical slits in the yoghurt container, sit it in a bowl and leave overnight in the fridge! I used black sambuca rather than ouzo; even thought I hate aniseed, it was great! I used a few more dates, and this made a lot more than four servings for us - thanks for a delicious and guilt-free desert!

I really enjoyed this unusual (for me) dessert. I was a bit worried at first that it had too much going on in flavor and texture, but it came together very nicely. With the sweet dates, I though it was plenty sweet just as written. Thanks for sharing this treat. (Note - I forgot to put the chocolate shavings on with the pistachio for the photo.)
