Combine yogurt, crème fraiche, cucumbers, spinach, garlic, dill, salt, cumin, lemon juice, dill and toasted caraway in blender. Puree until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into large bowl. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 2 hours. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.)

Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish by placing up to 2 tablespoons of dill-cucumber salad in the center of each bowl and a very light sprinkle of caraway seeds.

Procedure for Cucumber Salad

Sprinkle salt over cucumbers and let rest for 20-30, then squeeze and drain all the liquid. Let rest for another 20 minutes and repeat. Then add all remaining ingredients.
