There’s nothing like cold soup on a hot day to cool and refresh you. If you’ve had your fill of gazpacho, why not try cacik (pronounced JAH-jek)? Like the popular Greek dip tzatziki, this Turkish soup is a wonderful combination of cucumber and yogurt enlivened with a hint of garlic. But while the thick consistency of tzatziki is perfect for dipping, cacik is ideal for spooning or slurping.
