I love mild, soft cheeses. Who doesn’t, amirite? Lately I’ve been experimenting with making a marinated goat cheese-like snack from Greek yogurt. It’s super easy and delicious!
Marinated Cheese Balls
- 17 oz greek yogurt (I like Fage brand)
- chopped fresh herbs of your choice
- 3 bulbs garlic, thinly sliced
- sea salt and pepper
- olive oil
- splash truffle oil
Place cheese cloth or fine mesh strainer over a bowl and let yogurt strain for thee days in the refrigerator. After three days, form yogurt into golf-ball sized balls, squeezing out extra liquid as you form cheese balls. Place in a large jar with herbs, garlic, salt & pepper. Cover with olive oil, add a splash of truffle oil and let sit for at least 24 hours before serving (can marinate up to three days). Eat on bread or crackers with antipasto.
