  6. Gather together the cheesecloth, make a knot at the top and hang it over the sink to drip.
  7. After an hour, place the mixture on a clean surface, sprinkle over your favourite herbs, then shape it into a long roll.
  8. Refrigerate for a few hours, then crumble over a fresh summer salad and enjoy.
