A creamy and cooling chilled cucumber yogurt soup to help escape the heat.
The soup I have for you today is the ideal starter on a hot day when you’re in dire need of both refreshment and nourishment. It’s a no-cook soup that’s super simple to make and a hot weather favorite of mine.
It’s cooling properties lies in the combination of cucumbers, yogurt and mint. The refreshing trio is whisked together along with a few other savory and sweet additions to make a cold, creamy and slightly tart soup that’s pretty irresistible on days when the temperatures are steadily rising.
Prepare tender, grilled vegetable skewers featuring zucchini and summer squash and a tangy tahini yogurt sauce at your next barbecue.
With Memorial Day behind us and the 4th of July just ahead, I’d venture to say quite a few of you have already fired up your grills at least once. The summer months mean more meals enjoyed outdoors and that means lots of grilling.
Grilling isn’t just for hot dogs and hamburgers though; the intense heat of the grill transforms vegetables into something pretty special as well. Grilled vegetables cook quickly, with a just hint of smoky flavor.
