My saturday was spent dancin' in the kitchen, trying new recipes and having a good time putting ingredients together for this delicious and refreshing Chilled Cucumber Soup. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and will keep you cool during the hot summer days. It's the perfect dish to bring to spontaneous picnics.

Ingredients:

- 1 large english cucumber, peeled and sliced

- 1 cup greek yoghurt (if you're vegan, you could substitute the yoghurt with an avocado, to keep the creamy deliciousness)

- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

- 1-2 garlic cloves

- 1-2 tbsp olive oil

- 2 tbsp fresh dill

- fresh flat-leaf parsley/ mint (optional)

- salt & pepper

Directions:

In a blender, mix all the ingredients together. It's better to add the greek yoghurt first as it will be easier to blend the cucumber. You may need to add a little bit of water depending of your blender. Then, add the chopped cucumber, fresh dill, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley/mint and blend until smooth. Let is cool in the fridge before eating it. And voilà!
