It doesn't get much simpler than this bursting-with-flavor, broth-based soup (you can use vegetable stock or chicken) that takes advantage of handfuls of summery herbs.

This recipe uses sweet onions, butter, parsley, chives, tarragon, and thyme -- all of which you can easily pull from your windowsill container garden -- and takes less than an hour to prepare, though you'll want to give it about four hours to chill.

Garnish with sour cream for a rich final touch.
