I had a hard time finding a cucumber soup that was buttermilk based and not chicken stock based, so I was happy when I found this one. I also made it exactly as the recipe stated and it was awesome! Cool, fresh and lovely for summer, this is an excellent soup to make when you want something wonderful but don't have a lot of time. Do refrigerate it for at least several hours, though, because that makes the flavors really get happy!
