Shanklish is a dry cheese that originates from Lebanon. It’s made from cow milk, formed into balls and coated with fine herbs such as thyme (zaatar) and then aged.

Shanklish is a common meza dish rarely consumed as such, but rather seasoned in a mixture of olive oil, tomatoes and onions.  You can buy Shanklish in any Lebanese grocery store.
