Notes

This is a cool/room temperature soup, but feel free to heat it up in a saucepan if you want something warming! Make Ahead tip: The soup and the tomatoes can be made in advance, simply keep them separate and reheat tomatoes before serving! This lasts well in the fridge for 3-4 days, best not to freeze.
