Cucumber Gazpacho

Cucumber Gazpacho

With warmer days ahead, I like to eat flavorful chilled soups.  This gazpacho is a creamy bowl of balanced flavors that is sure to satisfy.

INGREDIENTS

1 3/4 Pounds Cucumbers (Peeled And Chopped)

1 Cup Green Seedless Grapes

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Cup Plain Whole Milk Greek Yogurt

1 Tablespoon Sherry Vinegar

Mint Leaves And Cucumber Slices For Topping

In medium-size bowl combine cucumbers, grapes, bread, almonds, shallots, and kosher salt.  Cover and chill 2 hours. 

Using and immersion blender, blend until nearly smooth.  Press through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl.  Throw away solids.  Whisk in yogurt and vinegar.
