Mix and serve.



Jajik is one of the simplest and most refreshing side dishes you’ll ever make. A traditional Armenian recipe that’s often made along side many of the kufteh recipes. Made with plain yogurt, cucumbers, dried mint and a couple of ice cubes. The ingredients pair so well together and the ice cubes help to keep the jajik cold. It’s simple to make, authentic and very refreshing!
