I THOUGHT this was a recipe given to me by my 80 yr. old Lebanese friend years ago. After making it, it is right on the money. Fantastic on sliced lamb in pita bread. A couple tips: dry mint will work fine putting the yoghurt in a sieve, lined with a coffee filter, overnite will get H20 out and make it less runny

This is my favorite recipe, except I use dill weed instead of mint and drain the yoghurt in a coffee filter for an hour before I make it.
