When you feel like having a light, elegantly flavoured soup, the Cucumber and Lettuce Soup is an option you will appreciate! Since the soup does not have any starchy veggies like potatoes, it has a mellow, refreshing texture, which is complemented well by the richness imparted by a combination of dairy products like milk and cream. You will love the delicate balance that makes this delectable soup a great success.
