Directions

Combine the cucumbers, green onions, jalapenos, tarragon, mint, chervil, garlic, salt, cayenne, yogurt, 2 cups sour cream, olive oil, white wine vinegar, and lime juice in a large bowl. Working in batches, puree the ingredients in a blender until very smooth. Transfer the soup to the refrigerator until well chilled, at least 2 hours. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Serve the soup, with each bowl garnished with a dollop of the remaining sour cream and some of the minced chives.
