Now you can drink soup even in the heat of summer with these refreshing recipes for cold soups, including gazpacho, cucumber soup, strawberry soup, cold tomato soup, fruit soup, cold potato soup, melon soup and more.
Guests at my garden theme party loved the flavor of this beautiful fruit soup, calling it elegant, surprising and a real treat! Strawberry yogurt, pureed berries and a spicy syrup are blended to produce a fancy first course.
"We grow lots of cukes in North Carolina, and plenty are available from friends if you don't happen to have a garden," writes Doris Heath of Franklin, North Carolina. "This is a good make-ahead summer soup that is so cool and refreshing. If people like cucumbers, they will enjoy this-even those who say they don't care for cold soup."
Nothing equals the taste of an ice-cold bowl of gazpacho on a hot summer day— I was hooked from the first spoonful! I found this recipe when I was looking for something to make with the abundance of tomatoes from my garden.
