    grumblebee's Note:

    A delightfully refreshing chilled soup -- this recipe is perfect for a hot summer day, a BBQ or even dinner party. The presentation is simple yet elegant, and the soup itself is so good and easy to prepare. There are other avocado/cucumber soup recipes posted here at Zaar, but this one is different and contains an additional ingredient: shrimp! :) This recipe was adapted from a similar one found in HomeBasics magazine. Also note that "Cook Time" is the time required for proper chilling.

      Really loved this soup! Unfortunately have to leave the shrimp out since my partner doesn't do seafood. Next time I make it though I'm going to add it just in my portion. Thanks for the recipe!

      This goes on my short list. I forgot to add chunks of the other half of the avocado an green onions when I served it. Will do tomorrow. Smooth and flavorful. If you like it spicey it would be easy to add kick.

      I thought this was just ok, which was disappointing because it looked and smelled great, and I love all the ingredients. I might have liked it better with something to give it a little kick - maybe some Tabasco sauce - and maybe a little cilantro. I'm not sure I'll bother to try it again though.
