I know there are many Mainers who don't like cold soup, but give this one a try, especially with this sandwich.

Add 2 lg. cucumbers that have been peeled, seeded and cut into chunks. Process until the whole is minced.

Now I would love to have everyone take a look at my new Youtube videos, under The Yankee Chef. You have to promise me one thing however. Don't laugh. If the camera is fuzzy in places (which I am improving by the way) or I act nervous, it's because I am a novice (or an idiot - you choose). Don't laugh at the fact that I am wearing shorts either (although my family and friends are) because of a nerve problem in my leg. Other than that, laugh!
