"A zesty Mediterranean soup for hot summer nights. Feel free to increase or decrease the amount of lemon and garlic depending on your taste. For a creamier version, throw in a half avocado."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

seedless cucumbers - peeled and grated
fresh lemon juice
fresh mint leaves, chopped
fresh dill, chopped
This soup is addictive on a hot summer day. Have made it a few times, and instead of seedless cucumbers I use regular ones which I deseed (split them down the middle & scoop out seeds with spoon). I like spicy food but this is better with only 1 clove of garlic to bring out the slightly sweet taste.
This was good! I liked it, and I may make it again, but there was no "Wow" factor. I found it refreshing, but it was missing something. Maybe if I'd let the flavors develop instead of eating it right away?
This recipe has a great flavor, but the first time I made it with my overabundance of large cucumbers, seeds removed. I grated them and then pureed the soup as directed. The flavor was great, but the texture was coarse. Next time I'll make it with the smaller cukes.
i really enjoyed the soup and will make again when i need to use up some cukes! hubby didn't like it so much so i'll be making it just for me which is why i only gave 4 stars. would love to try the avocado next time or a dollop of sour cream. won't bother grating the cuke or mixing it in a bowl next time - just dump all ingredients into the blender for less cleanup!
Not bad. Added freshly ground pepper and a pinch of cayenne to give it a kick. Served with baguette and fruit. Great and simple dinner for the summer.
I love this soup! It's easy to modify but great as is. I sometimes add celery, avocado and a tablespoon or 2 of ranch dressing. I also like 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle seasoning in it as well. I've made this almost weekly for months so it's safe to say, it's now a 'staple' in my diet!
Tastes amazing, especially on a hot day. I used plain yogurt with fat. Makes for a more filling dinner. I didn't add the raisins. I used my immersion blender. For company, I would probably put very thin slices of cucumber on top of each serving.
This is unique but very tasty if you like bold, herbal, garlicky dishes. I could barely stop eating after 2 bowls! Since it just calls for 'bunches' of the mint and dill, that is where you can taste-test for personal preference. I also use Greek yogurt for more protein and a slightly richer texture and 2 long (seedless) English cukes because there are no small seedless ones at my grocery store or farmer's market.
