Ingredients
  1. 10 bigger cucumbers (~eight pounds), divided
  2. 2 teaspoon honey
  3. 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  4. 1 avocado (peeled, without seed)
  5. 1/2 spoon of chopped fresh dill
  6. pinch of slat
  7. 1/4 teaspoon grounded black pepper
  8. Dill to the top
Instructions
  1. Cut the half of the cucumbers into small pieces. Place half of the cucumber pieces and the 2 tablespoons honey to a blender; process until smooth. Pour pureed cucumber mixture through a cheesecloth-lined sieve into a bowl. Repeat procedure with the remaining chunks. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
  2. Peel, seed, and thinly slice remaining 6 cucumbers; place slices in a bowl. Add vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons honey; toss well to coat. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Working with pureed cucumber mixture in sieve, press mixture lightly with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to squeeze out juice; discard solids.
  4. Place half of marinated cucumber slices, avocado, and 1 3/4 cups cucumber juice in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Pour cucumber mixture into a bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining cucumber slices and 1 3/4 cups cucumber juice; reserve any remaining juice for another use. Stir in chopped dill, salt, and pepper. Place 1 1/2 cups soup into each of 6 bowls. Garnish with cracked black pepper and dill sprigs, if desired.
  5. Wine note: Green, vegetal flavors, like those found in this soup, call for sauvignon blanc's distinctive, herbaceous character. The wine's grassy, citrus qualities bring out the soup's fresh, crisp flavors.
