Cacik

Cacik is a Turkish yogurt dip that can be eaten with any meal in the day.  To Greeks, and most Westerners, this dish is most commonly know as Tzatziki.  Cacik’s mild, refreshing tastes makes it especially nice paired with hot, heavier foods, like a lamb dish.  Cacik is perfect for dipping vegetable or simply eating alone.

Ingredients:
good quality plain yogurt (nice and thick)
one medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
lemon
dill, roughly chopped
olive oil
garlic
S&P
I’m not too worried about measuring for this recipy.  It’d be hard to mess up, it’s so easy.
Chop the Cucumber
Juice the Lemon
Pour in the yogurt
Mix in S&P, dill, 2 T lemon juice and a little olive oil
I enjoy the Cacik on healthy crackers with a salad for lunch
