Chilled Strawberry Soup

I absolutely love to pick fresh strawberries. I tend to pick a lot and after making shortcake and ice cream, my son is begging for this delicious summer soup. It is rich, so I serve it for dinner with good bakery bread and oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. My husband still needs a little something extra to eat, but everyone else leaves the table full and happy!

Summer in a bowl!
