This refreshing summer soup seems new and trendy, but it really is my Russian Grandma Korzin’s recipe! My mom told me about this as I was preparing a pureed cucumber soup for a dinner party. I do remember eating this in my grandmother’s kitchen. It is the original “Ranch” dressing!
In a large ceramic or glass bowl combine:
4 cups cucumber, peeled, large seeds removed, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
4 green onions, sliced thin (this should be heavy on the onion)
Sprinkle heavily with Kosher salt and let sit 20 minutes
2 cups sour cream and 4 cups buttermilk
This is about 6-8 servings
