"Soothing and delicious--with bits of cucumber. Better the second day than the first, if it lasts that long."

"Two of my three cats. <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/512309/shayn%20ying.jpg"> And my *biggest* and *BEST* cat of all: <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/512309/gabby%206th%20birthday%20leopard.jpg"> I am a busy mom of small children by day, and I work part-time as a doctor at night. I am trying to find the ever-elusive balance between career-track and mommy-track. Cooking and baking bring me joy, and I love to see my kids eat healthy homemade foods. I have relatives with a local organic farm, so I use their produce as much as possible. Yum! After some trial and error with rating recipes for various contests and tag games, I think I will from now on stick to the definitions provided by Zaar: 3 stars means I liked it! I might have had to make some adjustments, though. 4 stars means I LOVED it! Almost no adjusting was necessary. 5 stars means one of the most outstanding things I have ever tasted! Stands, as is, as a fabulous dish. I can't imagine giving only 1 or 2 stars -- that would mean that I either picked a recipe that I should have known wouldn't suit my taste, or that I really messed up while making the recipe. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/kid-friendlytag-participation2.gif"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif"> <img src="http://img355.imageshack.us/img355/3476/mybanner483b81c1ea2dfah7.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/DesertRose.jpg"><img src="http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y164/lauralie41/cookbookswapspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=kidfrecipeswap.jpg" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/kidfrecipeswap.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-SusieCat.jpg"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Zaar%20Food%20Photos/Food%20Photos%202008/herbspicesticker.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/holidaylightssticker.jpg"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">"

    I made a half recipe of this tasty soup at 10 am this morning for 2 of us to eat as a starter for our dinner this evening. I used all dried herbs + the garlic & mint. I was a little unclear how much parsley, garlic & mint to use, but see this as part of the beauty of the recipe. You can make it as written & then adjust to suit your taste pref the next time. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

    I used 3 cups of English cukes for this, peeled, seeded, and diced. I put some of the cucumber with the yogurt and some of the buttermilk in the blender, but left the rest of the cucumber in chunks. Wasn't sure what half a bunch of parsley translated to, so I used about 1/4 cup minced of italian parsley. Added some salt and white pepper. Made it before lunch to eat at dinner. I thought both the dill and parsley flavors were a bit strong, and I think I might add more cucumber next time. still overall, a cool and refreshing soup.

    Fabulous!! And definitely better the second (and third) day.

    Was much better after I chilled it several days, and blended it slightly to mix the flavors together (but NOT to puree). I think I would make it again next summer, but I might replace the yogurt with sour cream. Thanks for sharing!
