Not that we have anything against gazpacho. We love it. But sometimes it's the only cold soup people consider when summer rolls around. We've rounded up some other warm-weather options, like cucumber, corn with crayfish, and one you can make in your blender with leftover vegetables from the fridge...Often we think of chilled soups as an appetizer or a side dish to a more hearty meal. But add a half a sandwich or just a big slice of toast, and we think most of these could be a main course.
