Entertaining is a big part of a military wife's life—my husband was a career Army man—so my soup got much use! It's a great cool-down after Mexican food, but I've also served it with butter cookies at a baby shower. We're now retired here in the Utah Rockies. Both of our sons are grown.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 29, 2009

Thank you for this easy but elegant recipe for "Fresh Fruit Soup". I often give tea parties and serve this pretty chilled soup in a tea cup to my guests. They rant and rave over both the appearance and the flavor and always ask for the recipe. I give it five stars!
