I feel cool and refreshed just thinking about it! Unless you’re really watching your fat intake, go for the whole milk plain yogurt on this one–it’s oh so creamy and delicious. A great source of protein, too!
2 medium sized cucumbers
1 cup buttermilk (I keep the powdered kind on hand for occasions like this)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp. Chopped fresh chives
1 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh dill
6 fresh mint leaves
1/4 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon if you’ve got it
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill and mint leaves, combined
- Peel cucumbers. Cut in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Cut flesh into chunks.
- Place everything but the last two ingredients (yogurt and the dill/mint leaves) in blender; blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl.
- Whisk in yogurt. Chill.
- Sprinkle with dill and mint leaves before serving.
