Cucumber- Avocado- Yogurt Soup

About six years ago Christine Datian had her yummy Cucumber-Avocado-Yogurt Soup recipe published in the online edition of Sunset magazine. She asked if I
would post it here so you could ‘beat the heat’ of summer with this easy, no-cook dish. 
Enjoy this variation of traditional Armenian Jajik (chilled yogurt-cucumber soup)!
