1. Peel the cucumbers and cut into chunks, removing the seeds with a sharp knife. Peel and chop the garlic. Blend the cucumbers and garlic in a liquidizer.
2. Pour the puree into a hollow dish, add 1 litre (1 3/4 pints) water, a little at a time (if you prefer a thick soup, use less water). Add the vinegar and oil. Season highly with salt and pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for 2 hours.
3. Meanwhile, wash and dry the pepper. Grill on all sides, leave to cool, then peel. Remove the seeds and cut into thin strips.
4. Before serving, sprinkle the soup with the pepper strips and parsley.
