A wonderful cold summer soup, great with tortilla chips, crackers, or crusty bread. Can be used as a salsa if thickened.

I pureed about 2/3-3/4 of the vegetables and then mixed everything together as the recipe called for. I added chopped up avocado before serving. Excellent! Read More

I made this recipe with no alterations even though I thought some of the spices sounded funny together and it turned out wonderfully. It went well with French bread dipped in garlic olive oil. Read More

The flavor of this is good but the somewhat chunky texture was more like a salsa than a soup. I really think a portion of this needs to be pureed. I used roma tomatoes & I used spicy bloody mary mix instead of the tomato juice so I omitted the hot sauce. I used a lite flavored olive oil to avoid a heavy oily feeling. I didn't have celery so I used celery salt in place of the regular salt & I used fresh parsley & basil instead of dried.I served this w/ spaghetti squash w/ butter parmesan & bacon bits & Diana's suggestion of the french bread w/ infused oil sounded so good that I went w/ that as well. Thansk for the recipe...it was refreshing. Read More

This was awesome! I followed the advice of several others and put 3/4 of the mixture through a food processor before adding back the remainder of the veggies. I also added some additional tomato juice to make it more soupy. By the following day everything came together great. Highly recommended. Read More

I made this last night because I had tomatoes from my garden to use. Considering it's cold vegetable soup it's good. It's very healthy and it does taste good but I think it's more of an acquired taste. People who may not like "different" stuff might not like this. While I'll eat it my boyfriend said he'd rather just dip his chips in it.:) Read More

I made this soup for a 4th of July cookoout. Guests could not stop raving about it. I did change a couple of ingredients. Instead of hot sauce I used a 1/2 of a jalapeno pepper. And I used V8 juice instead of tomato juice. Just a personal preference. Thanks for a great recipe. Will continue to look for you for more delicious recipes Read More

Changed vinegar to red wine vinegar and increased to 1/4 cup. Also increased the olive oil to about 1/2 cup. The addition of the beef broth makes this so good. I also put about 1/2 of mixture through the food processor - nice texture and good flavor. Read More
