The Vichyssoise recipe is delicious and is enjoyed cold. A creamy vegetable soup.

This delicious cold potato and leek soup can easily be prepared the evening before and can be served as a starter to a delicious summer buffet. The soup is also a real treat when warm and can be served, for example, with Wiener sausages as the main course. Instead of the croutons, you can also use some salmon caviar as a garnish. But then serve a fresh baguette with it.
