Chilled Zucchini and Avocado Soup with Cucumber Salsa

This cold, smooth summer soup is brought to life with a bright, crunchy salsa. While the soup can also be served at room temperature, if you’re in a hurry to chill, ladle into 4 serving bowls and place them all in the freezer for 20 minutes for a quick fix.  Yield: 4 servings (1 cup soup + ½ cup salsa)

Quick Tips

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: When cooking the onions and zucchini, lower the heat to medium and cook longer to caramelize them. While not necessary, it adds a certain sweetness to the soup if time allows.

Keep it Healthy: Low-fat buttermilk is a good ingredient to have on hand, adding tang and richness without fat to a variety of dishes, from smoothies to soups to baked goods.

Tip Icon

Tip: Not a fan of cilantro? Just add chopped parsley into the salsa instead.
