Tomatoes, basil, chicken stock and olive oil are chilled together in this cold soup. Perfect for when tomatoes are in season!
Use vegetable stock if you want to make this a vegan dish.
My husband and I thought this was delicious. I had no garlic salt so I used a teaspoon of salt and added a clove of fresh garlic. Also only 3 lbs of chopped tomatoes. I took someone's suggestion and only drizzled a teaspoon or so of oil on the top instead of the quarter cup. Using chilled ingredients helped. Have already added this to my "frequently used" menus. - 15 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I didn't have any garlic salt, so I substituted 2 teaspoons of regular salt and about 2 tablespoons of garlic. I also think I used more basil than the recipe calls for. It was delicious! My roommates loved it so much that they told me I definitely need to make it again! - 28 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious, easy, and great on an August day in cental Texas! Next time I'll leave out the oil, though. - 18 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
