      I am a huge soup fan; I love eating it, and I even enjoy making it, because I always make a huge batch, freeze it in one or two portion sizes, and pack it for lunches for my family. I find that most soups taste even better after being frozen and re-heated. This soup is delicious, refreshing, and is a great lunch

      or even an appetizer before a meal. It is also relatively easy to make, unlike so many soups. The buttermilk adds a richness that is very filling and satisfying.

      Ingredients:

      5 large cucumbers, peeled, quartered lengthwise and seeded 1 bunch of scallions 1 bunch of dill, ends picked 1 clove of garlic, chopped Juice of 3 large lemons 4 cups of buttermilk 1 ...


      • cup plain yogurt Salt Freshly ground white pepper Dash of Tabasco (optional, but I always use it)

        Directions:

        Thinly slice half of the cucumbers crosswise. Thinly slice half of the scallions crosswise: set aside.

        Coarsely chop the remaining cucumbers and scallions and transfer them to a large bowl. Add the dill, garlic, lemon juice, buttermilk and yogurt, and give a good but gentle stir. Season with

        salt and pepper and puree in a blender until liquefied. I have used a food processor, but for some reason, the blender seems to make it smoother.

        Transfer the soup to a large bowl and add the reserved sliced cucumber and scallions. Adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce to taste. Chill it for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator, if you are serving right away, or freeze for later use.
