Cool Cucumber Soup

If you are like me and find yourself with an abundance of cucumbers from your garden, here's an idea for a soup that is simply delicious!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

• 2 cups Greek Yogurt (I used low-fat)
• 1 cup Vegetable Broth
• 2 English Cucumbers, peeled, diced, and divided (I used regular & removed the seeds)
• 4 Green Onions, sliced, divided
• 2 tablespoons Chopped Fresh Dill
• 2 tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley
• 4 teaspoons (a little over 1/3 lemon) Fresh Lemon Juice
• 2 teaspoon Salt (I only used ½ a teaspoon)
• Croutons

In a large bowl, combine Greek yogurt and vegetable broth; set aside. In a food processor, purée 1 peeled, diced English cucumber, 2 sliced green onions, chopped fresh dill, and chopped fresh parsley.
Add the cucumber mixture, fresh lemon juice, and salt to the yogurt mixture; whisk to combine.
Stir in 1 more peeled, diced English cucumber and 2 more sliced green onions; refrigerate for 1 hour.
Garnish each serving with chopped dill and croutons.

Did I mention that a BLT sandwich compliments this soup nicely!

Best wishes for a safe and Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!  


  1. this sounds like a heavenly summer meal.
    I feel deprived and sad if I don't have cucumbers in the house!

  2. That sounds delightful-especially in this hot and humid weather. Give a real meaning to "as cool as a cucumber" Yum- xo Diana

    As a fellow New Englander do you mind if I lift your wick.ed sign lol

  4. I am sure it is wonderful on a hot day!
    It is already very chilly here in the mornings and evenings, so at the moment, I am rather into food that warms me, but I love cucumbers and would certainly give this a try if we were still in the middle of summer.
