There's a reason for the saying "cool as a cucumber," and these crisp, fresh vegetables are the perfect meal on a hot summer day. Try them sliced in sandwiches and salads or as flavor in tap water -- or turn them into this chilled cucumber soup.

The cucumber flavor combines with pureed almonds and almond milk for a flavorful soup that requires no cooking at all.
