Superb flavor for so few ingredients. Yellow summer squash is a favorite of mine. I served this as a hot soup, but I'm quite sure it's just as wonderful served cold. I cut some calories by using fat free half and half. I chose fresh parlsey for my sering garnish. Thanx for a yummy yet simple soup!

Easy to make. When the garden is pumping out the squash it's great to try something new. I added some fresh parsley and cilantro. It reminds me of cream of broccoli, only with squash instead.
