Chilled Cucumber Soup

This summer we traveled to Holland to attend the wedding of our friend Marion, who once upon a time, lived in the USA and that’s where we met.

Marion has always great ideas……and ONE DAY, she decided to surprise us with this amazingly refreshing and healthy soup.

Now here in the middle of the summer and this being a great year for cucumbers, should you have planted some in your garden, I am sure you will not be disappointed with this recipe. Of course, you will probably still have plenty of cucumbers to pickle later in the season, but for now, try this yummy cold soup and stay cool!
