Cacik (Jojuk- the o is short)
2 medium cucumbers
2 cups of plain, yogurt (avoid low fat)
salt to taste
1 tablespoon fresh dill weed
1 large garlic clove
Peel and finely chop cucumbers, set aside.
In a mixing bowl whisk together the yogurt and enough cold water to make a creamy looking thick soup.
Add the rest of the ingredients saving the cucumbers for last.
You can drizzle olive oil over the top and garnish with dried mint flakes, crushed red pepper
and/or sumac if you wish.
Serve cold in small serving bowls as a side dish with meal.
If you make this, please let us know how it turned out. If you take a picture, I will post it.
Update: Stacy made it and and graciously sent in a picture. (Please note that she did not add water. Cacik is normally soupier than this, but she wanted to put it in tortillas/wraps.)
