This recipe is the best ever for the heat of midsummer. Thanks Hesari, Helsingin Sanomat the national paper, for publishing this last week. And more so, THANK YOU Henri Alen for the recipe.

if you read Finnish.
This is my attempt of translation:
1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced
4 dl natural yoghurt
Juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp honey
10 leaves of lovage
3 tbsp olive oil
Put all the ingredients in a blender. Turn the blender on and run for a couple of minutes. Enjoy!
The taste is even better if you set the soup settle and cool in the fridge for an hour or two.
The last picture is my light Bruschetta and pecorino sandwich.
