How to Make It

Step 1    

Line a strainer with a coffee filter or a double layer of moistened cheesecloth and spoon in the yogurt. Set the strainer over a bowl and let the yogurt drain until it is fairly firm, about 2 hours.

Step 2    

Using the side of a chef's knife, mash the garlic to a paste with a large pinch of salt. In a bowl, mix the garlic paste with the drained yogurt and chopped mint. Sprinkle with the mint leaves and serve with warm pita.

Make Ahead

The dip can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Suggested Pairing

All this minty, garlicky yogurt needs is a light, bright, tart wine to match its tang. Consider an aromatic Spanish wine from the Penedès region.
