assorted coatings such as:
nigella seedsblack sesame seeds
red pepper flakes
Roll each labneh ball in the coating of your choice. If the coatings don't adhere well, lightly coat your hands in olive oil and roll the cheese between your palms to leave a thin film of oil behind. The herbs and spices will stick to the cheese more easily.
Serve the cheese with fresh crusty bread or crackers. You can also serve the balls as a part of a cheese or mezze platter, or on top of a salad.
To store, put the cheese in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Best used within 24 hours, but the plain cheese will last a week or so.
