Strawberries Romanoff With Yogurt Cheese

We'd like to think any surviving Russian royalty would approve of this yogurt cheese variation on Strawberries Romanoff.

| March/April 1989

By some accounts, the chef to the last Czar of Russia created the original Strawberries Romanoff dessert. The orange liqueur traditionally serves as a marinade for the strawberries, but our version blends it into yogurt cheese (The recipe traditionally calls for cream, but our version is low fat). If you need to avoid alcohol you can substitute orange juice.

32-ounce carton vanilla-flavored low-fat yogurt
1 quart fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon orange liqueur (e.g., Grand Marnier), or to taste
 

The day before, drain the yogurt to make yogurt cheese. Wash and hull the strawberries, and place them in a large serving bowl. Place the yogurt cheese in a medium-sized bowl. Add the liqueur, stirring gently with a fork or wire whisk until well blended. Pour over the strawberries, and refrigerate at least an hour before serving. Serves 8.
