Low Carb Yogurt Dill Cucumber Soup. This is certainly good on any of the warm lazy days of summer but when it comes to health any day of the year is a good day for this Middle Eastern, Mediterranean soup. I might describe it as kind of a blended salad because it contains um…salad ingredients. You will need a blender or an emersion stick to make this and the rest of the ingredients are all readily available.

- This will last more than several days in the fridge and of course this gives plenty of time for the marriage of flavors. My best guess it will not last that long.
- I have shown a small picture of the Labna that I use as it is so much thicker than regular yogurt but unless you live in a metropolitan or Middle Eastern area, it will probably not be available to you.
- I think a little added mint might be a good addition.
