Spiced Radishes with Lemon Pickle Labneh

Slofoodgroup Team July 29, 2020

Tangy Labneh Cheese with Spiced Radishes is the perfect summer appetizer!

We like simple and no-fuss recipes that require little to no cooking. And this creamy, yet incredibly fresh labneh satisfies both our lack of time and affinity for wonderfully flavored food.

We cooked these radishes on a stovetop, but they are also fabulous when spiced and grilled, so make sure you bring this dish along to the next BBQ!
