Lird’s Cacık (cucumber, mint and garlic yoghurt)
Created by: Lird
This is another turkish recipe that is often had as a mezze(starter) and goes perfectly with my Lird Burgers (Turkish Köfte). Cacık is pronounced jajuk (with a hard j as in jam).
250g of greek yoghurt;
a chunk of cucumber cut into small cubes;
juice of half a lemon;
1 or 2 cloves of garlic, crushed;
leaves off a couple of sprigs of mint, finely chopped;
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy!
