Tarator | Bulgarian Cold Yogurt Soup

For the second day I'm sharing a easy dish from Bulgaria. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 44.
Tarator is a Bulgarian yogurt soup. The basic ingredients include yogurt, cucumber & garlic. This is cold soup is slightly thicker & can be made instantly in no time. 
Tarator tasted just like cucumber raita, which accompanies with pulao, biryani & similar rice items. 
The only difference is you add garlic & oil to flavor it up. Using cold yogurt & water in making this soup reduces the refrigeration time very much. 
Adapted from here.
Prep Time-10mins | Serves-2people
1Cup thick yogurt {cold}
1/2Cup water {cold}
1/2Cup finely chopped cucumber
2Garlic cloves finely chopped
1Tbs walnut pieces
2Tbs chopped dill 
1Tsp olive oil 
Salt to taste
- In a bowl add chopped cucumber, garlic salt, dill, walnuts, oil & salt. 
- Add in yogurt & water. Mix them well. Adjust salt if needed.
- Refrigerate it for some time. Serve chill. 
- Adjust water as needed. You don't want to make it too watery.
