Cool Down on Meatless Monday with Cucumber Soup

Jul 2013
The dog days of summer have hit before we’re ready, and the temperatures make any kind of activity at the stove a chore.  Cool Cucumber Soup is the perfect soulution for Meatless Monday.

Cooling recipe for cucumber soup on Meatless Monday.

You’ll need:
  • 4 medium cucumbers, peeled and seeded
  • 1 c melon-you can use honeydew or even watermelon
  • 1 T. kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic – pressed
  • 1/4 c mint
  • 1 1/2 c Stonyfield greek yogurt
  • white pepper to taste {you can use black pepper-it’s a visual choice}
  • chopped mint and chives for garnish

Blend everything in blender until desired consistency.  I like to a bit chunky.  If mixture is too thick you can thin with water or a little orange juice.

Let chill for several hours until cold.  Serve with your favorite whole grain crackers or roll and you’re good to go for dinner.  I think this summer will be filled with soups of many colors!
