    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    Posting for ZWT 6. If you are looking for a kabob with a kick, this is it! Lamb is marinaded in a spicy blend of herbs, creating a flavorful lamb kabob. Cacik has a million different uses. Use as a dip for kebabs, pita dip, or eat it alone, it has the most fabulous flavor.

      I loved this but I didn't use lamb as I did not have any, so I used beef. I also used hickory chips in my grill. The flavor was phenomenal. Threw in a teaspoon of garam masala in the marinade and extra cayenne. Yum. I will make this again and next time with lamb. Thanks because this is now my favorite marinade. I like to switch around a bit and get excited when I find something new.

      This marinade was delicious. I'm not sure the cacik sauce is quite right - it seemed to need more spices. We used this marinade on lamb and chicken and then put them in a rotisserie. Delicious!
