Cool Cucumber Soup with lots of dill

My husband is so funny...He sees something on FoodNetwork that he likes and literally gets in the car and picks up the ingredients. Anyway, we were watching Ellie Krieger on FoodNetwork and saw this intriguing soup.... very easy to make and healthy as well! Also, I happen to LOVE dill!

cOOl Cucumber Soup
3 cups plain nonfat yogurt
1 English cucumber (about 1 pound), cut into chunks
1 scallion, white and green parts, coarsely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for garnish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato (about 5 ounces), seeded and diced
2 teaspoons olive oil
In a blender, combine the yogurt, cucumber, scallion and dill. Pulse until pureed. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Ladle into individual bowls. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons of diced tomato, drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and garnish with a dill sprig.

Cool - Tori...I assume the "standard cucumber" worked after you pealed it and took out the seeds. :)

Tori has a "standard" cucumber? Is that the one she just sort of keeps around the house 'cause it's handy?

Where are you going with that one ...Ms. Jen?

Jen - I'd be careful about talking that way to a blackbelt.
