I was going to talk about Pear Salad #1, but today's soup bumped that right out of contention.
Actually, it was yesterday's soup, but neither Cranky nor I felt like eating pears again so soon... Pity us.
So this blend of pear, cucumber, a little onion, some fresh Anaheim chile, salt and buttermilk (mixed very smooth) stayed in the fridge overnight.
It lost a little of the vivid green color, but it really benefited from a rest. Like all soups, it tasted better the next day.
If I hadn't been posing an arty photo shoot, I might not have decorated it with those beautiful chive blossoms. But I believe, in retrospect, that they were essential to flavoring this cool concoction. Took it from "beauty product" (I mean, come on! Buttermilk, cucumber and pear?) to "food."
