Whether or not you enjoy Atlanta’s hot summer temperatures, it’s always nice to beat the heat for a few minutes. This week SOHO is serving up a chilled Southwestern-style gazpacho – one way to escape the summer sizzle. SOHO's gazpacho has just the right amount of spice and is topped with fresh avocado. We hope you’ll stop in for a cup or bowl soon.


Cucumber soup 


If you’re in the mood to whip up a refreshing summer soup at home, why not consider Chef Joe’s cumber-pistachio soup? The soup is served cold, so there’s no need to turn on the stove on a hot day. Here’s the recipe:


Cucumber-Pistachio Soup (serves 4)



4 large cucumbers – peeled and seeded

1/2 cup toasted pistachios

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 lemons – juiced and seeded

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 cup cubed French bread

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 cup water

Salt and pepper (to taste)



Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Chill and serve. Enjoy!
