Watermelon, strawberry, labneh and mint salad
Labneh, or laban as it's sometimes known, is a strained yoghurt cheese that is simply delicious and quick to make. It's perfect for light summer starters or desserts like this so be sure to make a bit extra and keep it in the fridge for another dish.
500g natural thick yoghurt
500g watermelon, skin removed and cut into rough 2cm chunks
12 or so strawberries, hulled and halved
1tbsp lemon juice
A handful of mint leaves, washed, with large ones torn in half
50-60g whole blanched almonds, lightly toasted
Line a strainer or colander with a double layer of muslin. Pour in the yoghurt, fold over the edges and place over a bowl in the fridge for about 24 hours. It will set to the consistency of a very soft goats' curd or cheese.
To serve, mix the chopped watermelon, strawberries, lemon juice, mint and almonds together and arrange on plates. Then, using a teaspoon, dot the mixture with rough dollops of the labneh.
