"I first tasted this sunny-looking soup at a luncheon hosted by a good friend," writes Linda Nilsen of Anoka, Minnesota. "It's simple and superb when served warm with a dollop of sour cream...or you can chill it for a refreshing change of pace in summer."

"My husband doesn't like peppers, but this sounded so good I thought I would make it. It was so good, and even he liked it! Very pretty too."
