Cold Avocado Soup

Recipe courtesy of the Joy of Cooking

This recipe is a favorite of my husband's.  It is a very simple soup to make and perfect for those summer evenings and literally made in minutes.

Puree in a food processor or blender until smooth:

2 ripe Hass avocados (about 1 lb), peeled and pitted
1 small clove garlic, chopped

Stir in:

2 cups buttermilk
4 tesp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch of ground red pepper

Remove to a bowl and refrigerate until cold.  Thin, if necessary, with:
1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk or water.

Taste and adjust the seasonings.  Ladle the soup into chilled bowls and garnish with:
Salsa Fresca, sour cream, fresh lump crabmeat or cooked shrimp
