ISO cold cucumber soup recipe

Has anyone got a really good cucumber soup recipe that is T&T please. I have now used all my refrigerator space on making the wonderful pickles that was posted on DC recently ( Thank you Steve Kroll ) If not, I'll experiment and see how it goes

I like this recipe:

Chilled Cucumber Yogurt Soup Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I leave out the olive oil and use 1/2 c buttermilk and cut the amount of yogurt to 1-1/2 c. I also seed the cucumber and let it drain in a sieve for at least 45 minutes after grating it. I adjust the amount of mint to about 1/2 the amount of dill or skip the mint all together. I also add some salted peanuts when serving. Chill for 4 hours, serve in a bowl that has a bowl of crushed ice under it.

I saw Hubert Keller make this on his show and thought it looked really good. Haven't tried it yet but I will say the recipes of his I have tried have always been good.

I've made this recipe a couple of times. It's creamy and delicious, and the flavor is somewhat reminiscent of Greek tzatziki sauce.

Now I'm totally inspired to make cucumber soup. I love tzatziki. I don't care for tarragon, though. I put mint in my tzatziki. I think I'll replace some of the tarragon with mint. Yum

With the amount of cukes we seem to be getting ready for.... I think we might be trying some soup too.

Thanks Steve. I picked about 20 lbs of cucumber yesterday from the garden.
I also pick about the same amount of tomatoes every other day.
Been giving most of it away.

The soup sounds great. Easy too!

It's hot, I don't feel like cooking, so I'm going to make this:
Cucumber salsa
2 cups finely chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded and chopped
4-1/2 tsp minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1/4 c reduced-fat sour cream ( I would Use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream)
1-1/2 tsp lemon juice
1-1/2 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp seasoned salt

Into a cold cucumber soup (using buttermilk and yogurt). I'll grate the cucumber rather than chop it.
