A light, refreshing appetizer soup, good for restricted diets. It came from the fifth edition of the American Heart Association Cookbook. I prefer the 1975 version of the recipe, which I posted as Vintage Fresh Mushroom Soup "Vintage Fresh Mushroom Soup"; pick the version that appeals to you. You can probably slash my preparation time; I am the slowest chopper in the Western Hemisphere.
