This was delicious! Made it to go along with Recipe #43342 , and it made a good accompaniment. However, it was hard to taste the lemon in the salad after the lemony soup! I think I'd like a speck of garlic--maybe let it set with a crushed clove of garlic for a few hours--and perhaps a bit more lemon. I also subbed olive oil for the butter and added pepper. Otherwise made as directed, without the endive or parsley garnishes. DH loved it; DS didn't, but that's no surprise as he hates tomatoes. Definitely will make this again (and again...and again)! Thanks so much for posting, Lainey! Made for Photo Tag game.
