Chilled Cucumber-Dill Soup


Another way to use up all those cucumbers that spring off the vine in summer. This is a spicy dill cucumber soup chilled to take down the heat a notch in summer. This soup is great made a day ahead and keeps for 3 days. Serve with some thin wheat crackers.

  • 4 large cucumbers - peeled, seeded, and cubed, divided

  • ½ cup finely chopped yellow onion, divided

  • ½ cup finely chopped celery, divided

  • ½ cup grated carrots, divided

  • 4 medium jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped

  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, or more to taste


  1. Set 1/4 cup of cubed cucumber aside.

  2. Place remaining cucumbers, 1/4 cup onion, 1/4 cup celery, 1/4 cup carrots, jalapeno peppers, Greek yogurt, sour cream, sugar, garlic powder, dill, salt, and pepper into the bowl of an 8-cup electric blender or food processor and pulse until all ingredients are just blended.

  3. Pour into a large bowl and stir in reserved 1/4 cup cucumber and remaining onion, celery, and carrots to add a little crunch to an otherwise creamy mixture. Taste for salt and pepper, adding more if desired.

  4. Place into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving.

Cook's Notes:

You can use serrano peppers instead of jalapeno, red pepper flakes instead of black pepper, and 1 packet of Equal(R) instead of white sugar, if preferred.

If using fresh dill instead of dried, add 2 to 3 teaspoons.
