Chilled Cucumber Soup

That is a big zucchini fritter

We got a ton of cucumbers from the garden.

What to do, what to do.

Chilled Cucumber Soup

  • 2 1/2 lbs cucumbers seeded and chopped roughly
  • 1 1/2 cups non fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1/3-1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • small bunch fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 salted anchovies rinsed and separated into fillets
  • 1 cup red onion roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 2-4 cloves garlic
  • Salt/pepper

Place cucumber, jalapeno, garlic, onion, anchovy, fresh spices and oil in a blender and combine until smooth. Add yogurt, and 1/3 cup buttermilk and blend again until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and let stand in refrigerator for at least 6 hours but up to 24. Re-blend and add more buttermilk to reach desired consistency. Serve cold garnished with zucchini fritters, chopped tomatoes or what ever else may come to mind.

    My blog has a green summer gazpacho today too! There is nothing more refreshing than a chilled soup in the summer. You are fortunate to have so many home grown cucumbers!
