I found this recipe simple to prepare, as I keep a lot of the ingredients in my house already. I found it to be my favorite of the three buttermilk soups as you can't really taste the buttermilk. I highly recommend this soup for a quick summer appetizer or main meal. It's delicious and beautiful!! My soup had a multitude of flavors could be because I used heirloom tomatoes and organic yellow peppers!
Nice flavor and easy to prepare - went well with chicken shawarma. I'm not a huge fan of cold soups, though, so I'd probably heat it up next time. Seems like the flavors would come through much better that way.
