More About This Recipe
  • Nothing fits the bill in summer like a no-cook recipe. This cool and creamy soup is as refreshing as it gets! We like ours topped with chopped purple onion and tomato. But there are a lot of other delicious pairings, as well. Sprinkle your soup with finely diced cucumber, fennel or scallion. Or try topping with grilled garlic shrimp and make it a full meal.
