Cool as a Cucumber

No vegetable screams "Summer!" to me like the cucumber. It's light, crispy, and refreshing. This summer, I've made salad, pita sandwiches, and even cucumber water. Now, with the last decent ones of the season, here is Chilled Cucumber Soup. Cold soup: isn't that gazpacho? I'm not sure, so we are sticking with Cucumber. I got the recipe from a book, and as usual, changed it up. Try to guess what's different!

2 medium cucumbers, peeled and chunked
1/3 green bell pepper or 1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1 tsp dried dill or 1 tbsp fresh (can also use mint leaves)
Salt to taste
Feta cheese for garnish

Combine everything in a food processor and process until smooth. Serve with feta cheese on top, in your awesome Campbell's Soup cups.
