Turkish Haydari
You will frequently see haydari sold in Turkish delis in various different forms, often involving feta. I used to stock up every time I went to my local one, until I realised how easily it could be made. Over the Summer, I often had this as a quick lunch with some flatbread and crudites. It only takes a few minutes to whip up, so it would also be good for last minute guests. The flavours are not necessarily traditionally Turkish, but they are delicious. This makes a good sharing portion.
