I tried this recipe recently using fairly average sized peppers and tomatoes and found that the yeild listed is very conservative. I think it could easily feed 6 people- and that's with pretty large servings. It's a tasty, refreshing cold soup that I'd recommend serving with a hearty bread. Because the soup is pretty light and low in Calories, it also would go nicely with a fruit cobbler for dessert :)
