    In the middle of an oppressively hot, humid Chicago summer, my wife and I chilled this soup in the fridge for five hours before serving under the shade of our oak tree in the backyard, and luxuriated in the taste, the texture and the coolness. A perfect Sunday afternoon lunch. Note: You cannot chill this soup too much. Be sure to add the tomato for garnish and color contrast. And a glass of very chilled pinot grigio wine. A No. 10 all around.  -  01 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A good basic recipe but needed a little bit of "oomph". I looked at the avocado and cilantro soup recipe and added some of the elements of that recipe (dash of Mexican hot sauce, lime juice). I also blended everything together and added extra cilantro at the end, when I put it in for chilling.  -  04 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My guest said it was the best avocado Soup she had ever had. She thought they were usually quite bland but this one was delicious!!  -  26 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
