Dive into the rustic-yet-refined world of modern Swedish cuisine with Lagom, which means “not too much and not too little.” Blogger Steffi Knowles-Dellner is a master of this delicate balance. Try this creamy cucumber and dill gazpacho for a light, cool first course. 

This is my Swedish take on a Mediterranean classic. The Greek yogurt and avocado give it a wonderfully creamy texture and trick you into thinking you are having something really quite rich and indulgent when actually this is a fresh and light dish with a major focus on veg. Add the chilies according to your taste — they vary a lot, so do taste a little before deciding. I prefer a decent kick.
