If you're wondering what to do with all those extra cucumbers you've got flooding your backyard garden, this Cucumber-Avocado Soup from the blog Smith and Ratliff is a perfect solution. Laura and Ryan are an adorable couple of food-loving twenty-somethings who hail from Texas and live together in Manhattan. 

Their chilled cucumber and avocado soup combines cool cucumber with creamy avocado and rich Greek yogurt. It's flavored with fresh dill and lemon and has a rich slice of buttered multigrain bread with salty prosciutto on the side to make it a bit more unctuous and add a hint of salt.

Try this simple soup tonight and make the most of all those garden-fresh cucumbers.
