FABULOUS SUMMER GARDEN SOUP

This is absolutely fabulous..I found it in a Better Homes and Garden mag..and
made one serving for me tonight..

SUMMER GARDEN SOUP

3 medium cukes, peeled, seeded and chopped
3 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced (optional)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsely
3 Tbs. cider vinegar
1 can chicken broth (regular)
1 8 ounce container of sour cream..(you could use lite)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

You can do 1/2 of this in a blender at a time or use a food processor for
the whole thing..Blend or process: cukes, tomatoes, garlic, parsely, vinegar,
chicken broth, salt and pepper..Whirl until rather smooth..Pour into large bowl.
At this point you can chill it..OR serve immediately. When ready to serve
this, add the sour cream..stirring until it is totally smooth..Garnish with
parsely sprigs..whatever you would like..

This serves 6 people..and has about 7 net carbs per serving..

Well the recipe didn't appeal to me all that much when I read through the ingredients, but I figured if Carolyn liked it enough to revive it from 6 years ago, it might be worth a try. And I am so glad I tried it - it's light and refreshing and really delicious. I also love that it's super easy and quick to throw together. Thanks Carolyn - for the recipe and the bump.

Thanks, gals...

Mary: I don't know if it can be heated..If I heated it, I'm not sure about the cukes. I might
leave the cukes out and chop them up and serve them as a garnish or a stir-in with the hot soupl.

Carolyn: thanks! I might try it with zucchini instead! I don't think I have ever had warm cucumber come to think of it!

Carolyn,
I had this all cut up and in bowl (except for chicken stock) and I used
everything from our garden, even chives. I got out the sour cream and then
DH came into the kitchen and said STOP don't make soup, make it into salad.
LOL. So I did as bidden and put some Ranch drsng into the sour cream and
some dill from garden and it was the best salad. So...., soup or salad,
I thank you for this wonderful recipe. It's delish either way.
