It looks like ordinary cucumbers and onions. But there's a zesty surprise hiding behind that creamy coolness -- a little zing of minced jalapeno. Not really hot (though you could use a milder Anaheim pepper if you're sensitive), just a little zip. A little celery adds unexpected crunch.

Made this last night for dinner and the only thing I did a little different was to add a little dill and DH wanted a little (I just added a little) sugar. I also cut the recipe in half. We both enjoyed it and it was quite refreshing to add celery along with the cukes and onions. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Game 2009.
