Cucumber and Yoghurt Soup

And no, I don't mean raita. But it would work very well as raita I think.
A dear friend of mine produced this at a dinner party a long time ago, and after much naggging she sent me the recipe. Seriously YUM, especially in the summer.

6 cups low fat plain yogurt
3 cups chopped and peeled cucumbers
2 green onions chopped
1/4 cup fresh mint
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 tbls. chopped and seeded jalepeno pepper

Combine all ingredients in food processor until smooth, but with some texture. Chill, season with salt and pepper to taste. Top each bowl with slices of grapefruit and avocado.

.....very very delicious!!!!

Cheap diet alternative:
Grate 1 cucumber into a bowl of yoghurt. Add salt. Eat.
