This is one of my favorite cold soups for the summer. If cucumber's not your thing, you can prepare this soup with zucchini, tomato, celery, or a combination of all of those vegetables. Avocado is a perfect base for an easy soup like this, and it will give you a canvas that is endlessly adaptable. —Gena Hamshaw
