I culdn't decide if this was a soup or dessert and didn't realize before I made it that it was going to be so sweet. This is probably just my opinion because I do not have a sweet tooth at all. I would use less sugar and perhaps some yogurt instead of the buttermilk. Chardonnay was what I had on hand and which I thought went well with the strawberries. Very interesting recipe, Mirj.
This soup is wonderful. I made it for the 4th of July, and I'm making it for a cocktail party next month. We use sugar substitute instead of the real thing.
Great taste! I put in a little more Chardonnay and upped the sugar to taste.
