Chilled Strawberry Soup

May is the month of strawberries! 

The Urban Dictionary defines strawberry thus: 

(n) A delicious fruit and despite being called a "berry" it can be quite large. Strawberries typically are very tart and sweet. They are recognizable due to their red heart-like shape and its many visible seeds covering its outside.

The more proper definition can be found on It says this:


   [straw-ber-ee, -buh-ree] 
noun, plural straw·ber·ries.
the fruit of any stemless plant belonging to the genus Fragaria,  of the rose family, consisting of anenlarged fleshy receptacle bearing achenes on its exterior. See illus. under achene.
the plant itself.
before 1000; Middle English; Old English strēawberige.

No matter how you define it, the strawberry is a tasty morsel of delight! It can be used as a garnish, for dessert, and even as the first course for an afternoon tea party. 

Here's a recipe for {Cold Strawberry Soup} that looks so pretty in a clear glass bowl that contains it for tea time.

{Chilled Strawberry Soup}
  • Puree 2 pints of hulled strawberries, 1/4 peeled cucumber, 2 tablespoons parsley, and 2 tablespoons of cilantro. Remove from blender and gently stir in a pint of hulled and chopped strawberries, 2 tablespoons parsley, 2 tablespoons cilantro, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and salt to taste.
