Now this is an opportunity to use fresh and organic vegetables from your garden.  This recipe is easy, delicious and just perfect for summer. My husband’s co- worker shared the bounty of their garden and this is recipe is just perfect to use them. This is a terrific soup recipe. It is very healthy, it is low in calorie and very filling. It is cool and refreshing and I love the gentle bite of the chilled cucumber and the smell of the cilantro melding together. So simple to make and you will not feel any guilt when you eat it.
