What needs to be highlighted is the fact that this needs to steep for 24 hrs and even gets better 2 to 3 days later.More of every veg. is also to the individuals taste.Some like lots of cucumber and some carrots,too.I like celery and include a few stalks,as well.
This was a very tasty cold soup and so colorful. I do not have a regular blender so I used an immersion blender instead, after having chopped all the vegetables first. I used the beef broth however next time I am going to use a vegetable broth because I do not care for beef that much. The only other change I would do is using less onion because it was somewhat over powering and less liquid because it seemed a little thin for my personal taste. This was a quick and refreshing addition to a dinner of simple sandwiches and green salad. My parents were both impressed and my dad asked for seconds. The leftovers were delicious the next day too- nice once the flavours had melded a bit. Thank-you!
