Cool, thick, and refreshing. Great with any Lebanese dish...gyros/shwarma, tabbouleh, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, baba ganouj, hummous, etc...serve with lots of pita. This is basically a no-cook recipe, great for those hot days in the kitchen! Final chill time may vary by personal taste and fridge/temp/etc.
