Delicious and healthy I am not a big cucumber fan so I substituted edamame instead. Pros: Easy to make, full of good non-processed food, filling!

I loved the base--only substituted two jalapenos (without ribs and seeds for a mild taste) for the green bell which to me is usually too bitter. I used Greek 0-¦ yogurt and white pepper instead of cayenne which is yummy but I didn't want any red glow at all, just the white and green combo! Delish!
