total prep


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 medium English cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed roughly chopped dill, plus leaves for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, a few shakes


  • In the bowl of a blender, combine sour cream, cucumbers, dill, salt, horseradish and Worcestershire sauce. Process until smooth; serve chilled.
  • TIP: Be sure to put liquid at the bottom of the blender, and the contents will puree more easily.
  • TIP: Try this soup with other herbs, like parsley or mint, or use a combination. Serving Suggestion: Place 2 tablespoons of crabmeat in the center of four shallow bowls, mounded tall in the center. Surround the crab with the soup and serve, garnished with additional herbs. For a vegetarian option, try sliced avocado.
