Here we are approaching fall and it sure doesn’t look or feel like it! Since it’s still been quite warm and baking is definitely out of the question, I am enjoying all things cold and refreshing. This is an easy to make chilled summer soup. All you really need are avocados, a serrano chile pepper, cucumber, and a squeeze of lime. Blend that up and voila! Lunch is served.
This is the perfect way to enjoy sitting out on the porch or overlooking balcony, lazily enjoying the flavors of creamy avocado and tangy lime garnished with a spicy radish and some soft cheese. Why can’t all days be like this?
3 ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 serrano chile pepper cut in 1/2 lengthwise
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp sea salt
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Depending on the strength of your blender, you may have to cut everything smaller to achieve a smooth consistency. Blend or process until completely smooth. The consistency will be like a loose sour cream.
radishes, thinly sliced
queso fresco, crumbled
Place into glasses or small bowl of your choice, garnish and make it pretty. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 min. Enjoy and savor the last days of summer!
