    Made it healthier. Although this was easy I ended up throwing out all the leftovers. I think using fresh tomatoes rather than canned juice will make a big difference. I would reccomend trying a recipe with fresh ingredients before this one.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Delicious, easy, and inexpensive. I did, however, simmer for a short period then chilled and served.  -  29 Sep 2008


    If you have leftover cucumbers and it's hot outside. Make yourself some of this cold soup. Made it the night before and when I came home from work it was ready to eat. Plus you can freeze it! Makes 10 servings. Was very good. I added some red hot to mine.  -  29 Sep 2008
