This soup is so nice and creamy, with a mellow cucumber taste. DELISHES!! Creamy,and no milk or cream was added. Carrots chopped very small can be added for color, if you like. But does not need it for taste. This recipe is so simple and tasty, I am sure you will want to make it often. A throw it in the pot.. and go shopping for a few hours. Dinner is ready when you get home. You will never guess it started with canned soup! SHhhhhh! it is our little secret! Enjoy.. Nancy. 8/18/13
