We recently had this cold yogurt soup on a trip to Bulgaria. There was a heat wave and this was the perfect dish when you don’t feel like cooking. All you have to do is mix yogurt with water, chopped cucumbers, walnuts, and dill.
The yogurt soup is incredibly refreshing and only gets better with time. Try to let this soup sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours before you want to eat it. The flavors will really develop and you want to eat it as cold as possible.
How To Make Yogurt Soup
You will need 2 cups each of full fat yogurt and cold water. Make sure not too use Greek style yogurt, it is too tangy. Mix well and set aside.
Add the peeled and chopped cucumbers to a large bowl wit the chopped walnuts, dill, grated garlic, and dill. Make sure to chop the walnuts very fine. Add the yogurt mixture along with 1 teaspoon of salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Mix well and allow to sit in the fridge at least 2 hours, or overnight. The flavors will really develop and you want to eat the soup when it’s cold. If you don;t have time, you can just eat it right away.
