I enjoyed a cool berry soup at a restaurant several years ago. The manager gave me some of the ingredients and none of the amounts, so I tinkered with what I had to get this refreshing rendition.

Served as an appetizer or a light summer lunch, this very refreshing cold soup is definitely representative of Southwest cooking. The recipe is versatile, too-you can add or subtract various ingredients according to your own tastes.
An exquisite combination of spices and a rich berry flavor make this beautiful soup so refreshing. It's a lovely and tasty way to begin a luncheon. Your guests will rave about the special treat.

Guests at my garden theme party loved the flavor of this beautiful fruit soup, calling it elegant, surprising and a real treat! Strawberry yogurt, pureed berries and a spicy syrup are blended to produce a fancy first course.
This chunky chilled soup is terrific in warm weather, but our family loves it so much I often prepare it in winter, too. I made some slight changes to suit our tastes, and the fresh flavorful combination has been a favorite ever since.

Nothing equals the taste of an ice-cold bowl of gazpacho on a hot summer day— I was hooked from the first spoonful! I found this recipe when I was looking for something to make with the abundance of tomatoes from my garden.
