I promised the recipe for my cold yoghurt soup to [livejournal.com profile] texas_tiger ages ago, and I couldn't remember if I had posted it or not...

3 cups/ 8 deciliter plain yoghurt (greek/turkish, preferably)
One half to one cucumber
One clove of garlic
A bunch of fresh mint leaves (or a few drops of mint essence)
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the cucumber to thin slices and chop the garlic finely. Put all ingredients except for a third of the cucumber slices in a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until the yoghurt is fluffy and thin. Add the remaining slices. Cool until serving. Serve with grilled sandwiches.

Serves two (perhaps three) as a main course and four as a starter.

That's called "cacik," only with no dot over the "i". Tzatziki sauce is derived from it, but in Turkey it's served neither as a soup nor as a sauce, but something to go along with the meal, like a salad only in a bowl.

And now I want some.

And I applaud your "greek/turkish preferably" line for yogurt. Something is different with our yogurt than the yogurt I get here, and I don't quite know what, but definitely something.
