      Good with Turkish Shrimp Pilaf. I added to taste rather than measure. I used 3% yogurt, English cucumber which I just peeled but did not seed, sea salt, and the garlic.

      Just needed to add my two cents. With all due respect to your mother-in-law, your recipe is not quite right. I am from Istanbul and have eaten thousands of cacik in hundreds of Turkish places in my life. Cacik is supposed to have water in it, more liquid-er than your recipe, but a bit thicker than ayran. It is not thick in consistency like a dip. It is a bit watery, which is why people drink it like a soup on the side. And there is also a little bit olive oil dribbled on top of it at the very end.
