Cacik


You'll need

1 clove of garlic For seasoning: sea salt 500 gm thick natural yoghurt 2 Lebanese cucumbers, seeded and grated (skin on) 1/3 cup finely chopped dill 1 tsp dried mint Squeeze lemon juice

Method

  • 01
  • Crush the garlic with 1 tsp salt, then beat with the yoghurt, cucumber and herbs in a large bowl. Season with salt and lemon juice to taste. Chill, covered, until ready to eat.

Although cacik is a popular mezze dish in Turkey, it’s also served as an accompaniment to pastries, meat and rice dishes and can be diluted with ice-cold water to make a refreshing summer soup. This recipe is from Turquoise – a Chef’s Travels in Turkey by Greg and Lucy Malouf.
