This no-cook soup gets a hit of creamy texture and tangy flavor from buttermilk while diced cucumbers add a refreshing crunch.

    My Baba made this weekly during summer months.We had fresh cukes in garden. Instead of pepper she would slice radishes paper thin and also finally diced hard boiled eggs were used as a garnish. Everything came from our garden or chickens. But the basic recipe you have is how it started. Love making this!

    INCREDIBLY simple soup. Other recipes I reviewed had several other ingredients and/or steps. This was as simple as prepping the veg and pouring in the milk! Extremely refreshing. I used white pepper to not mar the colour. My other half wants me to add a pinch of sugar the next time I make it. And I DEFINITELY will make it again. And again. And again.

    This was a very good and very easy recipe. Great soup for summer. You could add fresh dill, fresh chives or another herb if you like, but this was very good just as is. Thanks Sarah.
