    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This soup is great served cold or at room temperature. Perfect as a starter for a summer meal, as a light luncheon dish, or packed for a sophisticated picnic lunch with chicken salad on croissants. Originally from an August 1984 issue of Bon Apetit that featured a section on Picnics Made Perfect. Fresh tomatoes, straight off the vine, are a must for this for best flavor!
