Tarator is a type of cold soup, traditional in Bulgarian cuisine. Variants of the tartar are also present in the kitchens of other countries such as the Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, Greece, Albania, Cyprus and Iran. It is sometimes called a liquid salad or salad tatar, such as in Serbia, where no water is added to the tartar.
The tartar is made from yoghurt, water, finely chopped or grated cucumber, olive oil, salt, dill and crushed, pressed or chopped into fine garlic, and mixed. To the prepared mixture, if desired, chopped nuts and vinegar can be added if the milk is not sufficiently sour.
