Here's one for you to look over, Andy.

1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 diced cucumber
1 tbsp flour
2 cups chicken stock
1-1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tbsp fresh snipped dill
1/4 cup sour cream

Melt butter and saute onions until soft. Add cucumber to pot; add flour and stir well. Add chicken broth, vinegar, and dill weed. Stir well; cook for 30 minutes, then puree while adding sour cream. Serve well-chilled or hot.

As a lover of cold cucumber soup, Tinlizzie, I would only suggest you mention seeding the cucumbers before dicing and cooking. It really improves the texture.

During my first experience with CCS was in a restaurant and they served the sour cream as dollop garnish-like in the center, but, as you said, blended in also works.

Thank you, Selkie. There's nothing so good that it can't stand improvement.

I like the sour cream dollop on cold borscht, too.

I'm bumping this because I'm looking for other ideas.

I take a container of yogurt, the same amount of buttermilk, 2-3 grated cukes (seeded, but not peeled), a couple of cloves of garlic, grated, chopped green onion tops, fresh mint, dill, oregano, juice of 1/2-1 lime, lime zest, fresh ground pepper, and Vulcan salt. Topped with some unsalted sunflower seeds, chopped dill and mint, and a few sultans. The problem is, I eat the whole batch in a day! Wondering how the rest of you make a cold cucumber soup.

I don't have a soup recipe, how about a dill pickle smoothie.

Place in a blender 1 cup of yogurt, 1/2 cup pickle juice, 4 ice cubes, 1 large Claussen dill pickle cut into chunks, a few grinds of pepper.

Cucumber infused water is also very refreshing. Sliced cucumbers chilled in water plain or with lemon, lime, basil, dill, mint added for additional flavor.
