This cold soup is perfect on a sweltering summer's day, when the mere thought of heating up your kitchen makes you sweat. Since the soup is quickly prepared in a food processor, you can make it in the morning before heading out, stick it in the refrigerator, and have it ready for your return.
-- Jeanne Besser

Hands on time:   Total time: 30 minutes  Serves: 4


    2 tablespoons fresh dill, tough stems removed
    4 cups cucumbers, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
    2 cups unflavored yogurt
    1 tablespoon garlic-flavored olive oil
    1 tablespoon honey


In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, add dill and process until chopped. Add the cucumbers and pulse until finely chopped. Add yogurt, 2 cups cold water, oil, honey, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and pulse until just combined. Transfer to a large bowl, cover and refrigerate until serving. If the soup thickens too much, dilute with ice cubes


If making just before dinner, put it in the freezer or in a bowl of ice water in the fridge to chill quickly. Try topping it with chopped walnuts, chives, mint or added dill for extra flavor.
