Cold Radish-Cuke Soup

By • May 21, 2012 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: The recipe for this chilled soup is about as simple as it gets. It was given to me at a dinner party last summer and I scribbled down the ingredients on my cocktail napkin. I added Meyer lemon zest and juice, and substituted honey for white sugar.

Sounds great! I'm wondering if I put it through a fine strainer if it'll get a smoother texture. I'm looking forward to making this!!
