Grilled Ciabatta & Labneh Garlic Spread


We had a quiet Saturday evening ~ I finished baking the flat of Poteet strawberries I purchased this past Tuesday. The hubs cracked open a bottle of cab and grilled these thick slices of ciabatta from one of our local bakeries, The Bread Box. I made this gorgeous spread w/tahini, lemon juice & roasted garlic. Y’all, this ciabatta was crispy on the outside & super moist on the inside ~ perfect brushed w/olive oil & toasted on a hot grill. I got the recipe for this spread from
