Cacik (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)
Yield: about 3 cups
Yogurt is an important element in Turkish cuisine — the English word yoghurt or yogurt derives from the Turkish word yoğurt. Yogurt can accompany almost all meat dishes (kebabs, köfte) and vegetable dishes. In villages, yogurt is eaten regularly with rice or bread. The most popular way of serving yogurt as a mezze is Cacik, which is served with meat, sandwiches, rice and kebabs.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Keep refrigerated as long as the yogurt's expiration date. Serve with rice, pasta, kebabs, meat or chicken dishes.
Afiyet olsun … bon appétit!
