Chilled Cucumber Soup with Organic Greek Yogurt

Last Updated on July 3, 2020 by Ellen Christian

This chilled cucumber soup with organic Greek yogurt recipe is one of the ways I am using up the 8 million cucumbers in my garden. OK, maybe I don’t have 8 million but I am starting to feel like it.  Everyone is tired of cucumbers as the vegetable with every meal and I haven’t had time to make pickles yet.  It’s a cool and refreshing light lunch on a hot summer day.  This post has been sponsored by Stonyfield and contains affiliate links.

Chilled Cucumber Soup with Organic Greek Yogurt

I made this chilled cucumber soup with Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt so that it has a bit of a tang to it.  Plain yogurt is rather blah tasting to me and I much prefer Greek yogurt when I have it. Organic is the way to go, of course to avoid rBGH and any other nastiness that might be in the milk it was made with. I try to use fresh herbs from my herb garden whenever I can. It’s really easy to grow your own with an herb garden kit.
