A gift frpm the gods on a hot, humid day! Tarator is a cold soup made with yogurt, dill, garlic, cucumbers, and paprika, very popular with Bulgarians and Albanians. A related soup is cacik (Turkish and Armenian, also served cold), and a related sauce, very common for gyros, is Greek tsatsiki. There is also an Armenian yogurt soup, served hot with barley or a similar grain, called tanabour.
