RECIPE - CHILLED CUCUMBER YOGURT SOUP WITH DILL AND MINT

Happy end of summer - said no one EVER! It may be back to the grind, but technically, it's still summer so ignore those Halloween decorations and boots and sweaters for just a little longer. It's going to be hot in many areas for a while longer, so here's a delicious and refreshing cold soup for you to try! It's so fast and easy. All you need is a blender. Plus, it's low-fat and so pretty, your guests will think you're a Michelin star restaurant!

Here's the cooking video for your viewing pleasure:

YOU WILL NEED:

2 pounds of cucumbers (about 3 medium or 6 small ones. I like the Persian or English cucumbers because they’re seedless so half the work is done for you! Peeled and chopped and seeds removed if needed.

1 ½ cups greek yogurt – non fat, lowfat – whatever you want

1 garlic clove (or 2 if you love garlic)

Juice of ½ a lemon

Juice of ¼ a lime

Heaping tablespoon fresh dill chopped (or more if you like dill)

Heaping tablespoon of fresh mint chopped (or more if you like mint)

¼ cup good olive oil

salt and white pepper to taste

TO MAKE:

Put it all in the blender and whir it up!

Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight so the flavors blend

Serve cold.

Variations – use basil instead of dill or mint. Add a little fresh jalapeno if you like spice. Add avocado or maybe a little goat cheese.

You can also use this as a thin sauce over grilled chicken or fish.
