Cold Avocado and Cucumber Soup With Dill

No-cook soup good for hot days of summer. Real easy to make because the blender or food processor does most of the chopping, but it takes time to chill which is not included in cooking time. I omitted the optional shrimp (8-16 boiled & chilled) since I'm a vegetarian, but you might want to add some to yours. It also very light and low-fat. From the August 2009 food section of the New York Times, adopted from "Once Upon a Tart..." by Frank Mentesana and Jerome Audureau. Once Upon a Tart is a charming cafe in Soho neighborhood of NYC.
