Author Notes: The recipe for this chilled soup is about as simple as it gets. It was given to me at a dinner party last summer and I scribbled down the ingredients on my cocktail napkin. I added Meyer lemon zest and juice, and substituted honey for white sugar.


Serves 6 as a starter

  • 1 hothouse cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 1 bunch red radishes, trimmed and quartered (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon Meyer lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch ground white pepper
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth.
  2. Chill several hours before serving.
  3. Garnish with thin slices of radish and cucumber. Serve cold.

This is a beautiful soup and the ingredients sound very refreshing for a hot summer day or our Indian summer to come.

Sounds great! I'm wondering if I put it through a fine strainer if it'll get a smoother texture. I'm looking forward to making this!!
