This Memorial Day weekend, scoot the burgers and hot dogs over just a bit.  Make a spot on the grill

As with any original recipe from my husband, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Enjoy!

ps:  If you're wondering, what the heck are these mystery spices anyway?  And labna?  Never heard of it? 

Yep, I was floating in the same boat until a few months ago, introduced via a recipe typical of Israel which used a number of these middle-eastern flavors.  I've since learned to love my favorite ethnic grocery store.
