Tarato comes from Bulgaria. The Jews of Bulgaria, like those of Holland,
Greece, Turkey, and Italy, are descended from Jews expelled from Spain
and Portugal in the 15th century. This cold soup is particularly suitable
for hot summer nights in Israel. Yogurt, the main ingredient, has been
a popular food in Israel for many years.
3 cups plain yogurt
3 cups water
dash of salt
2 tbs. olive oil
1 tbs. vinegar
2 cucumbers (diced or cut into small pieces)
Mix all ingredients except nuts. Sprinkle with nuts and cool in refrigerator
for 2-3 hours before serving.
