1 cucumber, peeled and halved
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, crushed
15 ml/1 tbsp chopped mint
2.5 ml/4 tsp chopped fennel

Method :

Using a teaspoon, scoop the seeds out of the cucumber and discard. Chop the cucumber flesh and sprinkle with salt. Leave to stand for 1 hour, then rinse and drain well. Mix together the garlic, 5 ml/1 tsp of the mint, the fennel, wine vinegar, oil and yoghurt. Add just enough of the water to make a thin cream, then fold in the cucumber. Season to taste. Chill for 2 hours before serving in chilled soup bowls, sprinkled with the remaining mint and with a few ice cubes in each bowl.
