Cool as a cucumber (and avocado) soup recipe...
This soup is really delicious and really easy to make. I know...I say that all the time, right? Well, all you have to do is put the ingredients in a blender and puree them. Seriously. Easy, delicious, and healthy...what's not to like. This is also a great recipe for the crazy heatwave that has gripped much of the country. I hope you try this...you'll be glad you did.
