Cucumber Soup aka Turkish Yogurt Soup

Its funny, when I call this Mediterranean delight by the Turkish Yogurt Soup name, nobody would try it, but when I call it cucumber soup, suddenly we have brave culinary adventurers at the table, its all in the packaging sigh

Blend till smooth: 3 large cukes scrubbed but not peeled with 1 large zucchini, 1 container 3% plain yogurt, 1 clove garlic C lemon juice 1T salt, a handful each of fresh dill and spearmint leaves and enough water to make the machine go.

Chill till really chilled serve with a generous dollop of sour cream and for fancy sake garnish with sculpted sliced cucumbers (they look like flowers if you scraped the tines of a fork deeply & vertically over the cuke before you slice it) and a sprig of mint or dill on top of the sour cream for contrast its pretty and oh so refreshing.
