I live in Turkey and love ordering haydari at restaurants or picking it up from the deli section at the market. It is a thick and tangy Turkish yogurt dip best served with meat kebab and pita bread.

Normally cream cheese is not one of the ingredients, but it can work to firm watery yogurt used in Europe/Usa etc.

My Turkish friend makes it with Olive Oil, chillis, salt & pepper to taste. The best and freshest Greek or homemade yoghurt; quality Olive Oil and Feta are ideal. We love it!
