Set aside for about 30 minutes.
Rinse the cucumber under cold running water for about 1 minute, shake off the excess water, and pat dry.
Transfer to a food processor or blender, add the vinegar, and puree to a smooth consistency.
Combine the chicken stock, vermouth, and pepper in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat.
Whisk in the cucumber puree and the chopped dill and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Ladle into 6 soup bowls and garnish each serving with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkling of fresh dill.
