In a small sauté pan, lightly brown chopped garlic in olive oil over a medium high heat. Gently fold in olives, garlic, parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper into one quart of yogurt. Using a layered cheesecloth, or a yogurt cheese maker, strain the whey from the mixture overnight. Place in a small bowl, and serve with your favorite fresh vegetables or crackers.
