how to prepare Cacık

Place the garlic, yogurt and water in a medium sized bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon until it is blended very well. Add diced cucumber and mix again. With a ladle pour into small bowls and then add 1tbsp of olive oil on top of each. Garnish with fresh dill.

Cacik goes very well as a side dish with white beans, rice or chickpeas.
