Top Eastern European Cold Soup Recipes

There's nothing more refreshing on a warm, summer day than a bowl of cold soup! With crusty bread and a green, leafy salad, it can be lunch, an appetizer, or the main feature in a no-cook dinner. There are even some terrific dessert options. Cold soups come in two types—uncooked and chilled, or cooked and chilled. A big plus is that they free the cook from last-minute preparation since they require several hours of chilling and should be made hours or even a day in advance. Serve in chilled clear bowls or cups for a pretty effect.​​
