  This soup can be prepared as below or varied by using all zucchini,
  all crookneck, or even all pattypan squash. Pattypan squash, also
  known as cymling or scallop squash, is a tiny saucer-shaped vegetable
  with a scalloped edge. It should be firm and without blemishes. It is
  best to use fresh herbs for this soup.
  Plain low-fat or non-fat yogurt can be substituted for the buttermilk.
  If fresh basil is unavailable, substitute 1/4 cup parsley for the
  basil-parsley combination.
  Cooking Notes:
  It is always important to taste food for seasoning after chilling
  since the flavor is more pronounced when the food is hot.
