Summer Loving # 2= Cucumber Gazpacho




This soup, is kind of like a white gazpacho, without the tomatoes, and the ingredients can be mixed a bit with good results. It's a very refreshing soup- a great starter on a warm evening.


Cucumbers, peeled and seeded
Buttermilk ( A combo of chicken broth and sour cream works too)
Cilantro
Hot pepper (can be any number of varieties) to taste- I recommend starting on the not as hot side - its harder to turn the heat down
green onion or a sweet onion like vidalia
crushed garlic
salt & pepper to taste

Mix all the above ingredients in a food processor and play with proportions of liquid to solid depending on your consistency preference.
