Default Cucumber Dill Sauce

Cucumber
1-2 stalks Celery
1 cup Chicken Broth
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp chopped fresh dill

1. Bring the Chicken Stock, Salt, & Pepper to a boil in a small saucepan and reduce the heat slightly; boil until reduced to 1/2 cup.
2. Split the Cucumbers lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon.
3. Puree Cucumbers and Celery stalks in a food processor along with 2 teaspoons fresh dill until smooth, allow to settle ~1 minute and drain excess liquid.
4. Add the puree to the chicken stock, whisk well.

*This would work GREAT over a nice 8oz piece of salmon!
*I tried this recipe and after pureeing the cucumbers had a good deal of liquid - it turned out more like 'soup' than 'sauce'. I will try this again, draining some of the water and adding some celery stalks for structure and update the recipe appropriately.
