Chilled Cucumber Soup

We have a lot of cucumbers coming from the garden and there is nothing better than chilled cucumber soup.

Here is what I did to make the soup.

Chilled Cucumber Soup
2 cucumbers, peeled and seeded
1 small avocado
1 handful spinach
1 cup water
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 small hungarian wax pepper, seeded (we have these growing in the garden as well)
salt to taste
a couple of sprigs of fresh dill
a couple of basil leaves
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  Add more salt or herbs as needed for taste.  Place in refrigerator to chill.  Serve in chilled bowls and top with fresh chopped herbs of your choice.
