I’ll make this quick because we need to get right to the recipe. Back when I was pregnant with Poppy and we didn’t have a kitchen, we did a LOT of take out. There’s a restaurant down the street from us called Mizlala! It has an incredible Mediterranean / Israeli menu and I can safely say I’ve ordered everything they offer. NOTHING IS BAD. It’s all delicious and even to this day (even with having a kitchen!) we order from them about 1x a week! Their Garlic Feta Labneh is next level. It’s the perfect dipping sauce for just about everything. I’ve become so obsessed that I’ve started making a version at home to have on the days we don’t order in. It’s officially my new favorite dip for fries, vegetables, chicken etc and I cannot wait for you guys to try it.

A little 101 on Labneh

If you’ve never heard of Labneh before, or you haven’t come across it at your local market, it’s strained yogurt. You can make it yourself with greek yogurt and a cheesecloth, just strain it for a few hours. Or you can find it in the yogurt section of your market. Either way, this recipe will rock your world.

And if you haven’t ever bought Sumac…. buy it immediately! It’s tastes like lemon and it’s excellent on potatoes, in dressings, on fish and chicken… you name it!

    OMG I will make this for every single person that comes to my home, then I will share your recipe after they have sufficiently begged for it. LOL

  2. This sounds like such an upgrade to our usual ketchup & fries! Can’t wait to try it!
    Can I make one suggestion? Instead of using a single use zip lock plastic bag, toss it in a bowl and mix with your hands or a spoon? Just as easy and no waste. Win win!

    1. totally fair – but no plastic bag is a single use for us! I wash and re-use! Have for 12390123 years as that’s what my parents do too

  3. So yummy! I didn’t want to bother with food processor so I used a pastry blender took. Lol. Delish and a definite make again!

    These may just be the most delicious fries I’ve ever had. I’ve never had sumac, and the flavors are incredible – and they were so simple to make. I didn’t have the labneh, so just used plain greek yogurt and the sauce was delicious. My kids all loved them too – even my picky eater who “couldn’t put her finger on the flavor” – maybe that’s just because it was a new one! A huge win for this recipe – and I can’t wait to make it as an app for games and get togethers. Tonight, we are eating them with sandwiches.
