Chilled Cucumber & Dill Soup

Friday, July 29, 2016

It has been hot hot hot outside these past few weeks. So hot that the idea of cooking over a stove makes me feel ill.  I mean, its hard enough keeping the house cool enough! I was craving something light, cool, refreshing and healthy and decided to make a chilled cucumber & dill soup with left over veggies in the fridge.  Welcome the chilled cucumber & dill soup! This dish is super easy and keeps well for days- check out the recipe below.

 I also made a spicy classic gazpacho with my left over veggies which was equally as good- but with a nice kick.
