Cool and refreshing Cucumber Gazpacho with yogurt, cilantro, coriander and lime. Top this with shrimp or keep it vegetarian! So simple and tasty. With a Video!
In the heat of summer, nothing is as refreshing as Cucumber Gazpacho. Traditionally gazpacho is made with juicy ripe summer tomatoes, but here it is made with cooling cucumbers, straight from the farmers market.
The gazpacho is blended into a silky creamy soup with greek yogurt, coriander, lime and cilantro and then it’s chilled. It is wonderfully refreshing and hydrating during the hot months.
When ready to serve, sprinkle the Cucumber Gazpacho with finely chopped shallot, diced cucumber, cilantro and scallions for delicious texture and beautiful color.
It always amazes me how something so simple and ordinary can be turned into a thing of beauty.

To turn this into a light meal, feel free to add chilled shrimp which of course is totally optional.
This can also be served as a refreshing little appetizer, poured into tall shot glasses like we do when catering. You could tuck the shrimp into the shot glass to, with the tail hanging out.
It can easily be made the day before and stored in the fridge until ready to serve.
Cucumber Gazpacho is so refreshing on hot days. Also very hydrating. I love having a batch of this in the fridge over the weekend.
Enjoy making this Cucumber Gazpacho. Have fun with it, be creative! Make it your own. Just play. 😉
