I had never made a cooked cold cucumber soup before. It is very good. Used red onions and chicken stock as that was what I had. Very smooth soup. Flavorful!

Very good. Didn't bother sauteeing the vegs on such a hot day, just threw everything in the f.p. and buzzed it up, then let it sit overnight in the fridge. Thanks so much --this is a keeper.
