mmm, that all looks very yum - and so refreshing... strangely I have just this weekend rediscovered the joys of tomatoes on toast, although I have been eating little cherry toms...x

hey shanna and d,

the recipe is super easy and is loosely based on fannie farmer's. i only had one and a half cucumbers, so you may want to multiply this. this was good for about 3 servings.

puree together:
1 and 1/2 cucumbers
1/2 an onion
4 cloves or so of garlic and
1/2 cup of veggie stock

in separate bowl mix:
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup half and half
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (i used white balsamic)
1/2 cup veggie stock (it's in both puree and this part)
cayenne, black pepper, salt and dill

add puree to above and chill for a few hours and serve.

this recipe didn't call for it, but mint is probably also really good in it. i saw some other recipes online that included mint. yogurt could also be used instead of sour cream i bet.
