Served usually as an aperitif in the summer, because of its fresh, light texture and flavour. The Lyonnaise enjoy with bread, charcuterie, gressins (breadsticks) and cold bottles of rosé. Traditionally made with Fromage blanc, this recipe utilizes the products we can find in BC, substituting the Fromage blanc with thick greek yogurt and Crème fraiche.
