Author's Notes

You can substitute regular kirby cucumbers, just be sure to remove the seeds. The seeds are negligible in the hot house variety, so I skip that step.

step 3
To serve, ladle cold soup into chilled bowls. Float one or two slices of cucumber on the soup and carefully spoon pico de gallo over the soup and sliced cucumber. Be careful so that the garnish doesn’t plop to the bottom, but rests gently on top. Enjoy!
