Cold Summer Soups

Cool summer soups are a refreshing addition to warm-weather menus.




Gazpacho and Tomato-Based Soup Recipes

The king of cold soups is gazpacho. This Spanish soup has multiple variations, but the most famous is the tomato-based gazpacho that originated in Andalucia. Modern versions can be made with tropical fruits, avocados, corn, and even watermelon.


Other Cold Vegetable Soups

Gazpacho and cucumber soups are classics--but vary your routine by drawing from the cuisines of other cultures.


Vichyssoise Recipes

Vichyssoise is another cold savory soup that has enjoyed decades of popularity. It was created by a French chef, Louis Diat, at New York's Ritz-Carlton Hotel in 1917. Made of pureed potatoes and leeks, and enriched with a swirl of cream before serving, vichyssoise is easy to prepare and makes any meal feel like a special occasion.


Fruit Soups

Refreshing fruit soups are a delightful way to begin or end a summer meal. Berry and stone fruit soups are traditional in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. These soups are a perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors. Berry soups are often accented with a touch of wine and a splash of cream or sour cream. Fresh lemon juice is often used to brighten the flavors of the fruit. Garnish pureed soups with whole berries or sliced fruit and a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream.
