Easy Cold Cucumber Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Fabulous and a huge hit with a crowd. Based on the other review, I also cut way back on the vegetable broth so it wouldn't be too thin. Otherwise made exactly as written, yet tripled it for a crowd of 18 people -- and still had some left over (which I am enjoying right now!). Delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day.

This may be a personal preference, but I like cold soups like cucumber and gazpacho a little thick. I added 1-1/2 cups of vegetable broth (not 2), and this still was too thin for me; you literally could drink it. I did use reduced fat sour cream and Greek yogurt. It does have good taste, so if I make it again, I definitely will cut the vegetable broth in half, maybe more. Also, I typically eat smaller amounts of cold soups, like not a soup bowl. Considering that, this made way more than 4 servings in our house (made about 2-1/2 pints), so depending on much you normally serve, you may want to take that into consideration. That's not meant as a negative remark, I just ended up with more than I would have liked.
