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.
This is outstanding! Thanks for sharing.
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.
SPRING PAC 2008: YUM!! I whipped this up in no time and it is delicious!! I ate it with some leftover lamd that I had. MMMMM!!
