This chilled soup is delicious on a hot summer day.
|Time||1 hour 10 minutes|
|Directions||Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
Grate the cucumbers into the bowl – you should have about 4 cups.
Stir in everything else but the garnish.
Cover and chill for at least an hour.
Ladle into bowls, top with herbs, and serve.
* Cucumbers are often peeled because their skin is waxed for storage and/or because the skin is bitter. If you’re using garden cucumbers, you don’t need to worry about the former, but you should taste a slice to determine whether the skin is bitter and you need to peel. Whenever possible, it’s better not to peel cucumbers (and most other fruit and veggies) because nutrients tend to be concentrated in the skin.
