Summer Soup

I had been wanting to make a cold, summer soup and I was so pleased to see cucumbers and some early peaches at the farmer's market this week.

Luckily for me, the herbs came from pots on my back porch, and I already had all of the other ingredients which I think wound up blending together beautifully. This is not a difficult recipe at all but does require a bit of prep with the vegetable, fruit and herb chopping. Once that is done though, its all about the food processor or blender doing the work.

Zesty Potato Salad

Last week we had a raw, vegetable and fruit summer soup. If you have not tried that recipe yet, you could pair it with this week's recipe and have a nice, cooling soup and salad combo.

Potato salad doesn't have to be a heavy, mayonnaise-laden affair. It can be zesty and refreshing when the cooked (and cooled) potatoes are accompanied by crisp, raw vegetables and dressed with lemon, oil and spices.
