Yogurt adds a refreshing tang to this cooling cucumber soup.
Game plan: You may need to purée the soup in two batches. Also, plan on making it the day before you are going to serve it. An overnight rest in the fridge really allows the flavors to meld.
Beverage pairing: Frankland Estate Rocky Gully Dry Riesling, Western Australia. Something clean, bright, and slightly tart catches a lot of the elements of this soup, and Riesling can do all that. Rieslings from the very cool interior valleys of Western Australia can also often have a minty, herbal edge which beautifully picks up the nuances of the soup.
