Are you like me wondering how you are going to turn your Cucumber Harvest into something Healthy and Delicious? Want to try a Garden to Table Recipe?
I did some researching and found that there are a lot of recipes for all kinds of Cucumber Salads but I wanted to be daring and try something different and went for this quick and easy Garden to Table Fresh Cucumber Soup.
I am going to say make sure you really like Plain Greek Style Yogurt, and Cucumbers before you make this. This Fresh Cucumber Soup Recipe only uses a handful of Ingredients.
My husband has the distinct honor of being my taste tester, lucky for him LOL and this was not one of his favorites. He loves cucumbers, it was the Greek Yogurt he is not entirely fond of, but he still finished an entire bowl so not his favorite but still yummy.
What does it Taste like?
Well I made 2 versions. The Fresh Cucumber Soup tasted like a Greek Tzatziki Sauce and honestly you could use this as a sauce, dip or spread. My Elevated version had a sweet, fresh and savoury taste. Both were good, it just depends on your taste. If you have a sweet tooth then you will like version 2 better.
So I will give you the Recipe for the Fresh Cucumber Soup and then I will show you how we added a couple more ingredients to transform the flavor from Greek Tzatziki to Naturally Sweet .

Here are the Ingredients for the Fresh Cucumber Soup Version 1:
- 2 Large Cucumbers
- 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
- 2 ¼ Cup of Plain Fat Free Yogurt
- ¼ Cup of Fresh Chives minced
- 2 Tablespoons of Fresh Cilantro chopped
- ⅛ Teaspoon of Salt
- ⅛ Teaspoon of Black Pepper
1:Peel Cucumbers and slice lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and place them in a bowl. Now slice the cucumber into ¼ inch thick pieces and set aside.
2: In a blender or a Mini kitchen chopper which is what I used, combine the cucumber seeds and lemon juice and puree until smooth. Add 2 cups of the yogurt and process together until blended smooth.
3: Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the ¼ inch cucumber pieces. Add chives and cilantro and season to taste with salt and pepper.
4: Ladle the soup into 4 bowls and top each with 1 tablespoon of remaining yogurt. Yields about 1 ½ cups per serving.
Now if you want to Elevate this to Deliciousness try Version 2 and add these INGREDIENTS:
- One fresh Mango peeled and sliced into little chunks (you could use fresh strawberries or whatever your favorite fruit is)
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
Add the fruit and vanilla extract to your bowl and mix well and now you have the most refreshing and Sweet End of Summer Soup.
I hope I gave you a couple of ideas to use all of those Cucumbers from your garden and if you have some recipe ideas you want to share just leave a comment I would love to see them.
