Italian and Swedish meatballs, step aside. These Turkish meatballs are so juicy, light, and flavorful—not to mention easy—they'll be rocking your party world this holiday season. And you've got to admit that hors d'oeuvre offerings can't get more festive than the accompanying pomegranate yogurt dip. If you can find labne (thick, Middle Eastern yogurt), use it. Strained whole-milk yogurt comes closer to the flavor of labne than Greek yogurt, but if you're short of time, Greek yogurt is a fine substitute. Editor's Note: This recipe is part of Gourmet's Modern Menu for A New Years' Eve Pasrty. Menu also includes Bite-Size Chipotle Chicken Soft Tacos (tinga de pollo) and Parmesan Pepper Curly Kale Chips .
