"This is a great recipe for those hot summer months or an elegant first course for a dinner. Originally from a September 1981 issue of Bon Appetit in the RSVP section. It comes from chef Harry Marsden of Au Relais restaurant in Sonoma, California.It's easy and quick to make and doubles or triples well."

    Really good. I used cilantro instead of parsley and served it with some lump crab meat. YUM!<br/>I would suggest making it the day before you want to eat it.

    Exxellent Soup. I served it to a group of 12 ladies and they all raved about it! :-) I did not blanch the spinach separatyely, but chopped it and added it along with the broth.
