No recipe image available.A cool and creamy cucumber soup with tangy buttermilk and refreshing mint.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 ice cubes
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Sprigs of mint for garnish

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients, except 1/2 cup of the prepared cucumbers, into a blender. You can use a food processor, but the blender makes a much silkier, smoother soup.
  2. Blend the mixture well and season with additional salt (if needed) and pepper to taste.
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the remaining cucumbers and a few sprigs of mint.

Makes 4 servings.
