Author Notes: I looked no further than my daughter's driveway garden (the only reliably sunny spot in our city lot) for the inspiration for this soup — gorgeous cucumbers and leafy parsley. A quick spin in the blender with a few other ingredients makes for a clean, tasty and surprisingly filling summer soup. The yogurt and almonds give it some heft and the olive oil a little fruitiness. Fresh and delicious.Laurie

Serves: 2

  • 4 cups cucumber (appx. 2), peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, packed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic. chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted in a hot pan or oven
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Put everything except 2 tablespoons of the almonds into a blender and process until smooth-ish. it won't be silky smooth — kind of textured. Garnish with remaining almonds and a little additional yogurt, if you like.
