Cold soup is one of our favorite summer dishes. From sweet peach to zesty gazpacho, these meals are at once slurpable and refreshing.

For cold-soup newcomers, one of our favorite Spanish recipes, gazpacho, is the ultimate chilled soup. Made with the ripest in-season tomatoes and cucumbers, this vegetarian classic is thickened with bread and perked up with garlic and sherry vinegar. For a creative variation, try a white macadamia rendition topped with asparagus slices cured in a vinaigrette of honey, lime juice, cilantro, and serrano chile.

Beyond Spain, yogurt is used to thicken an array of cold soups around the world. It stars in our tangy spinach-and-chive soup topped with grilled scallions and two different chickpea soups packed with fresh herbs. Keep cool this summer with our best cold soup recipes.
