This soup has been in our family for 4 generations. Grandmother added the garlic, mom added Lawry's® seasoned salt, and I made it a puree. It's light and refreshing on a hot summer's day and decidedly 'cucumber!' Garnish with any or all of the following: chopped tomatoes, onions, parsley, or slivered almonds.

I don't know this just must not be my 'thing' but I really didn't care for this. I know that it's a soup and it's supposed to be liquid-y but this was just 'too liquid-y'. I was hoping for more body I guess. The flavor just wasn't there for me and I did find it salty. I was glad to try something new though... Read More
