“Yogurt cheese is a wonderful substituion for butter or margerine on crackers, bread etc.(Look at the calories) I love this herbed version on crostini, garnish with some parsley. It will keep in the fridge for up to a week. Use it plain or add your own favorite ingredients. No Fat yogurt works well - Make sure that the yogurt you use does not have geletin in it or it won't work.”
