    How to Make Cold Cucumber Soup

    This chilled soup couldn’t be easier to make. Just chop all of your ingredients and add them to the blender.

    Carefully transfer the blended soup to an airtight container and stick in the fridge for an hour or two to chill.

    You could certainly eat it right away, if you wish, but I prefer it definitely on the chilled side.

    I like to garnish this Cold Cucumber Soup with diced red pepper, slivered almonds, and of course, more diced cucumber.
