Who doesn’t have too many cucumbers in the garden when summer arrives and the weather turns warm? Well, this cold cucumber soup will not only help use them up, it will also cool you down after going for that daily harvest.

This recipe actually can also do double duty; simply leave out the chicken broth and it makes a great dip, a spread for your sandwiches, or a filling for tortilla roll-ups. Whatever you choose to do, preparation is only about ten minutes and it makes a frugal dish.

  • 1 ½ — 2 large cucumbers sliced (see the size in the photo below)
