1/1 Photo of Tarator - Bulgarian Cold Cucumber Soup
This cold soup is among Bulgarians favorite foods for the summer. It is served as a first course instead of a salad or between meals as refreshment. You might even see it served in a glass. Most men here say it goes great with a glass of cold rakiya (Bulgarian grape or fruit brandy) or Ouzo.

- 2Beat the yogurt with a fork until it gets liquid and pour it over the cucumbers.
