Zucchini Soup

You just never know what I am going to make with my farmers’ market finds.  This time, zucchini is the ingredient.  How about cold zucchini soup?    I always experiment with my recipes and love feedback from friends especially with any new recipe concoction.  I served this last weekend and all responses were very positive.  So, I will definitely make this recipe again and you should definitely give it a try.  Perfect to make with the abundance of zucchini that is on the horizon at all markets.

  • 2 pounds zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, minced
