Try this low-fat spread recipe on a variety of breakfast foods.

| February/March 1999

Makes about 3/4 cup

This delicious spread contains no fat and is higher in calcium than cream cheese. Many of my friends prefer it to sour cream for topping eggs or breakfast potatoes.

• 6 ounces plain nonfat yogurt
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoons snipped fresh chives, washed and ­patted dry
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chervil, washed and patted dry

1. Place the yogurt in a strainer lined with a clean dish towel.

2. Place the strainer over a bowl.

3. Fold the sides of the towel over the yogurt and cover with a salad plate.
