    1 1/2- 2 tsp. salt

Put all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Chill for several hours. I usually make this in the morning so that by dinner time it is well-chilled. Wonderful during those dog days of August.

    Tasty and light, great fresh combination for summer! This made over 8 cups, so I found the 2 cup serving size a bit big, more like 6-8 servings for us. - 7/20/10

    My family liked this. Used greek yogurt rather than plain, added more garlic and cilantro. Left out the water. Added cucumber and avacado diced to about 1/4". - 7/3/10

  • Absolutely delicious! So simple to prepare. Since we have a garden with lots of cucumbers and other veggies, this makes a nice change from tomato gazpacho. - 6/27/12

  • Tasted great!! Everyone liked it. No fresh avocados so used frozen guacamole. Didn't peel or seed the cucumber. Even froze some. I will try the frozen soup next week. If it still tastes good, this will be a great way to 'put up' the extra cucumbers from the greenhouse. - 10/8/11
