Here is a soup recipe that I put together.
This is wonderful cool and refreshing soup on a hot summers 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 sounds like a GREEK recipe to me.
Maybe a little like tzatzik 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 and the summer heat will just disappear!!....
