Author Notes: I am not planning to watch the Super Bowl, even though it takes place in Dallas this year; but this is a perfect excuse to make a cheesy, creamy, pungent dip with a splash of arak and some freshly made french fried potatoes.Taste of Beirut

  • 6 ounces labneh (yogurt cheese)

I love this dip, Joumana. The combination is genius and I'm a sucker for all things creamy!

Could you substitute pernod for the arak?
