Delicious Summer Soup Recipe!
As a child, summers always held a certain measure of wonder. The afternoon sunlight shining on the small insects buzzing around a field, the cool sandy soil in the shade of the trees, the faceless one who calls me by a name i do not know from the depths of the local pond. If you were like me, summertime was a fun reprise from the school year, a time of freedom and swimming and cookouts.
Today i’ll tell you how to make a real American classic, the Summer Soup. I remember those long days of running out in the summer sun when I would come home and find a bowl of this soup sitting on the table for me, refreshing and crisp. My family always affectionately called it
Dead Man’s Slop
, but ive heard it called many names depending on the regional variation. Some nicknames ive heard for this dish are Electric Salsa, Turtle Swamp and Politician’s Desire. No matter what name you know it by, im sure we all know its crisp delicious taste and emerald sheen.
So here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- a jar of dill pickles
- a bottle of mustard
- a bag of yellow starburst
Start by emptying the whole jar of pickles into a blender. Then empty the mustard container. Once blended, cut the yellow starbursts into fours. Pour the blended mixture into a large bowl and add the starburst, stirring as you add them. Pour some into a bowl for serving, and add a sprig of parsley and a single sardine for garnish (optional).
I hope you all will enjoy this summer dish as much as I have!
