This labneh dip with pomegranate is a delicious party dip recipe for entertaining. Made with strained yogurt, it’s reminiscent of cream cheese.




  1. In a bowl, mix the yogurt and kosher salt. Pour the yogurt into a cheesecloth or handkerchief and tie it over a wooden spoon. Hang the cheesecloth over a pitcher and allow to strain in a refrigerator for 24 hours. After 24 hours, discard the whey strained from the yogurt. Transfer the labneh to a container or use immediately (keeps in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks).
  2. Prior to serving, seed the pomegranate: Go to How to Cut a Pomegranate
