Cucumber and Dill Soup

It’s funny how everybody’s been talking about kale lately, like it’s a Kardashian or something. For the last year or so it’s been the new “it” veg. I know a lot of you out there will find this blasphemous, but I’m really not a fan.

Now a vegetable that I really love and gets very little press is the cucumber. I’m sure many of you find it blandly simple, but I love them in salads, as part of an appetizer, or to give a sandwich some much needed crunch. But, what I really love on a hot summer’s night is this light and refreshing Cucumber and Dill Soup .
