Today I show you my recipe Cold Cucumber Soup. Especially on hot days this soup is a great appetizer. It goes well with BBQ and generally as the first course in a summer menu.

I know the “most delicious cucumber soup” with salmon tartare in the variant presented here from my apprenticeship at Alfons Schuhbeck. At that time we used a red wine vinegar. Today I like to use raspberry vinegar or lemon juice.

You can simply recook the soup yourself. Here are my instructions and all the tips. Wish you good luck!

1. Preparation Tips for the chilled Cucumber Soup

First of all here are some tips to make sure that the cold cucumber soup works well in your kitchen….

  • Store the cucumbers overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Prepare the cucumber soup 3 hours before serving.
  • Fill the finely mixed cucumber soup into a glass or in a water bottle and put it in the fridge.
  • Put the cucumber soup on ice or put it in the freezer/freezer for 15-30 minutes before serving.
  • Passing (sieving) the cucumber soup is a matter of taste, you can try both.
  • Small cut cucumber cubes without seeds you can add as a filling in the cold soup.
  • Taste the cucumber soup additionally with cayenne pepper.
  • You can also prepare the cucumber soup with yoghurt, buttermilk, crème fraîche or soy cream.
  • You can add fresh or dried dill to the cucumber soup.
  • Try instead of raspberry vinegar a white wine vinegar or lemon juice.

  • Put the cucumber soup in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile cut diamonds from 2 layers of strudel dough. Grease the baking tray with the oil and place the diamonds on top. Bake the strudel dough sheets in the oven for 8-10 minutes until crispy brown. Then place on kitchen paper.

  • In the meantime, squeeze out the lemon, dice the salmon and mix with the herbs, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Finally add the sunflower oil.
  • Arrange the salmon tartare in small bowls, alternating carefully between the salmon tartare and a strudel leaf. Arrange the very cold soup in deep plates and serve with the salmon tartare.
Prepare avocado tartare
  • Halve the avocado and remove the core. Finely dice the avocado and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. If the avocado is very soft, you can prepare an avocado puree: Finely crush the avocado pulp with a fork and season to taste. Then arrange the avocado puree between the strudel dough sheets with a dressing bag and serve with the cold, iced cucumber soup.
