"I happened across this recipe when looking for another chilled soup recipe and thought i needed to try it. So glad i did!!! :) It's rich and filling and yummy and simple - what's not to like?! The corn adds a nice sweetness that's not overpowering. I may add more curry next time but this is definitely at the top of my summer rotation!"
