Turkish Cacik

A cool, refreshing addition to any Middle Eastern meal.

Along with the Mercimek Koftesi (Lentil Balls) for our Turkish themed Supper Club dinner, we brought this delicious yogurt side dish.

Turkish Cacik: a cool, refreshing addition to any Middle Eastern meal.

I’ve always been a fan of cooling yogurt side dishes with Middle Eastern and Indian dishes. They make such a nice, refreshing accompaniment.

When I made this one for our Supper Club, I doubled the recipe, figuring I’d eat about half of it just on my own.

It was a big hit at the dinner table. The cucumber and walnuts give it a really great texture, and the fresh dill livens it up. It had just the right amount of garlic, and the sprinkle of red pepper flakes on top added a bit of a kick.
