1 English cucumber, ¾ peel removed and cut into large chunks
1 ½ cups plain Greek yogurt
½ cup sour cream
1 shallot, grated or minced
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves
¾ teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground white pepper
6 ounces lump crabmeat, broken up
- Chill 4 to 6 shallow soup bowls.
- Combine the cucumber, yogurt, sour cream, shallot, olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the dill, the salt, and plenty of pepper in the bowl of a food processor or in a blender. Pulse, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula, until completely smooth.
- Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Ladle the mixture into the chilled bowls and mound some crabmeat in the center. Garnish with the remaining dill.
