    The recipe should say to PEEL and SEED the cucumber. Lemon or lime juice to prevent avocado discoloration. Chives optional instead of scallions. Yogurt for buttermilk. Add diced tomato (opt). I liked OutofIdeas' suggestion to add dill. - 7/3/12

    I added a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a pinch of crushed dill for a sense of Greek/Mediterranean flavor. - 6/24/08

    Guess I could get used to it. It was sort of OK! I only gave it one star and then it showed up as BAD. IF i had known 1 star was BAD I'd have rated it 2 stars. (is that only half bad? LOL) - 12/2/11

    I added a little more buttermilk, a little less water, fresh chives and cilantro and topped it with a few pieces of feta. I added a little crushed pepper, salt and hot crushed pepper. OMG -- FABULOUS. This is my second recipe with sparks and they have both been great. - 8/8/08

    This soup was a big hit made with greek yogurt, instead of buttermilk, I used a peeled Asian cuke, and added some lime juice along with a few sprigs of parsley while gathering mint. Sometimes I use chives if no scallons, I only added 1/2 cup water. - 7/14/15
