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 half an avocado.
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. - 13 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 03 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 26 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
