From Sharon Delaney-Chronis in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin: When I first prepared this change-of-pace soup for a party, everyone called it a hit! My husband always likes it warmed up, but I prefer my soup chilled. Any leftovers, we drizzle over frozen custard for a fresh, fruity topping. — Sharon Delaney-Chronis, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin
