Cold Cucumber Soup (Cacik)

This recipe came from a Turkish Cookbook about 20 years ago. It is a very cooling soup on a hot day, and the ingredient amounts can be easily varied to suit your taste.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 3 or 4

Prep Time: 15 mins   Cook Time: none  


1 – 2 large Cucumbers
1 clove Garlic
1 1/2 TBSP Cider Vinegar
2 TBSP chopped fresh Dill
2 TBSP chopped fresh Mint
1 TBSP Olive Oil
Salt to taste
1 pint Yogurt


Peel, seed & grate cucumbers. Add garlic, vinegar, dill, mint, olive oil, and salt. Stir in yogurt. If this is too thick, you may thin it with a little water. (I prefer 1 cup of yogurt and 2 cups of buttermilk rather than all yogurt). Chill thoroughly.

    This sounds like a great thing to do with the extra cukes coming on right now. And a terrific summer recipe.

    About how much volume are we talking about for the grated cucumber? A couple of cups, maybe?
