Cream of Lettuce Soup (From My Great Recipes)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by justmeterri

Here is a soup that is elegant, easy to make and tastes terrific. However, do not cook it longer than 3 minutes as the ingredients do not require longer cooking and it will lose color and flavor. The soup is equally delicious served hot in winter or served cold on a hot summer's day.

Had this is Nantucket many years ago. Tastes just the same as I remember. EXCELLENT!
