She {hearts} Refreshing Cucumber Soup

A friend of mine made this delicious “Cool As A Cucumber” soup for another friend’s baby shower that we threw last summer. I have to say, cold soup sounded weird and not really appetizing to me at first. However, it was amazingly refreshing and yummy, perfect for a simple summery appetizer or even a creamy but healthy main dish, perhaps for lunch with a great salad. I’ve been unable to get this soup out of my preggo mind for the past few weeks, so it looks like I am going to need to break down and dish some up!
