Cacik is a garlicky yogurt sauce that is often served alongside grilled meats as well as a meze dish. Its close cousin is haydari, often served alongside raki, an aniseed spirit, and made with very thick strained yogurt called süzme. (To make süzme, line a colander with clean muslin or a clean dish cloth and drain three times the quantity of yogurt in it over a sink or bowl overnight and continue as for the recipe below.) Cacik is sometimes diluted with water or milk to make it soupier.
