Pink Soup, Yes Please!

It has been mighty warm down here in southern Florida this summer.  The heat tends to make it difficult to eat warm meals, but I love soup.  I have been on a mission to find a recipe that sounds delightful, fresh, and light.  The recipe that I keep wanting to try is Ina Garten's Summer Borscht.   I made up my mind and decided to make this for dinner.  I served the chilled soup along with tuna salad sandwiches on the yummy french bread pictured above.  For a first timer it did take me a chunk of the afternoon to make, including the chill time of four hours, but it was well worth it.  I think I won Zach over tonight.  Link below for the original recipe from Food Network.
