If you also happen to be struck by a heatwave and lost all skills to cook anything else, you WILL manage a cold soup. Trust me. Even with a brain thats as scorched as Grimsvotn.
fresh greens - 2 handfuls of wild garlic + oakleaf lettuce, ruccola, parsley, dill; 3-4 cherry tomatoes, 3 radishes (preferrably unpeeled), bit or leek, bit of rhubarb for evey eater & 8 slices of cucumber to decorate
1 cup of sourmilk or 1/2 cup greek yoghurt and 1/2 cup buttermilk for each eater
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/6 tsp agave syrup or 1 tsp sugar
lime juice and grind
cut the greens rather fine except the pakleaf lettuce, it is prettier left intact. make sure there are no snails in the wild garlic (or if you prefer them with snails, I suggest you add them from a can, cause they are sort of less alive). Cut tomatoes into quarters, radishes into circles & chop rhubarb so fine your granny can only see it as a pink blur, and place in a glass bowl with all the greens. mix in your preferred fluid. If you want a runnier soup, you can add something like the marinade from a jar of pickled mushrooms or cucumbers. Those should never just be thrown away they are irreplaceable in soup and salad.
add agave syrup if you are rich or plain damn sugar if you are as poor as me and DON`T have a mom who gets agave syrup for free from her eco-store workplace. Add also salt, lime grind and juice if you did not use any pickle-marinade.
Top the soup with diagonally cut slices of cucumber and eat before you pass out from the heat.
