I've found that some people don't like cold soups. My introduction to cold soup came at a Polish restaurant in London. It was basically buttermilk and cucumbers. It was delicious! Cold beet soup and cold carrot soup come to our table frequently in the summer.
Last summer, a friend served a most delicious soup at a summer luncheon. Several of us asked for the recipe but she seemed a bit reluctant to share. I realize that it is o.k. to keep some recipes secure in the recipe box. A few weeks ago, she invited me for lunch and once again served the soup in a crystal bowl. Oh my! It was even tastier than I'd remembered. As I was leaving, she said "I'm giving you the recipe. Share it on your blog if you'd like". Instead of handing me a recipe card, she told me how to make the soup.
I served it to Andrew, who liked it and suggested that it would be good sipped through a straw. I agree.
Here is her recipe:
Chilled Vegetable Soup from Anita
1 46 ounce can of V-8 juice
8 oz of plain yogurt
Whisk until well blended and chill.
With Anita's blessing, I added a dash of Sriracha and the juice of a whole lime
