Random Recipe of the Week

(A chilled Kosovar soup; pronounced "tara-toy")

This is one of my favorite soups of all time and it couldn't be easier to make. I'm thrilled that summer is around the corner and now I can start "cooking" it again!

2 cups plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups cold water
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cucumber
dash olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
(if you're feeling sassy, try adding a couple of green onions and/or a handful of fresh parsley)

It doesn't get any easier than this:

1. Wisk yogurt and water together
2. add the rest of the ingredients
3. chill for at least 30 minutes (the longer you let it sit, the stronger the flavors become)

On lazy summer days (does anyone even have those anymore!?!?) I put this together right after breakfast and let it chill until lunch or even dinner....just make sure to stir again, right before serving.
