Whip up this refreshing no-cook soup on a hot summer day and you'll feel cool as a cucumber in no time:) I saw this picture & recipe in a 1995 greek cooking magazine. Had all the fresh ingredients and it's really been very very hot here so what better food to eat and not heat up my kitchen. I didn't have any shrimp though but like the idea & will add next time I make this soup again!
