A refreshing and versatile dish, cacık can be served as a salad or as a cold soup. Its most traditional role is as an accompaniment to meat courses, when it is served in small individual bowls and eaten with a spoon in between mouthfuls of meat. The cucumber can be diced or sliced and the yogurt is often flavoured with dried mint instead of fresh.
