This is a wonderfully cool and refreshing soup on a hot summer's day. I love cucumbers and sour cream, so I made up this wonderful cool iced cucumber soup. With a touch of garlic and dill, it begins to sound like a Greek recipe to me. Maybe a little like tzatziki sauce! If that's the case... Then the Gods on Mt. Olympus would surely be proud! Put on your summer toga, and enjoy this cool, refreshing soup. The summer heat will just disappear! Nancy....8/14/12

On a super hot day, this cucumber soup is a refreshing lunch or side for dinner. This recipe is filled with cucumber and dill flavor. The ice melts slowly in the super creamy soup keeping it cold.
