This salmon chowder recipe came about as a way to use up odds and ends in my fridge. I thought other readers might enjoy a recipe that began as an experiment but became a mainstay for me. —Liv Vors, Peterborough, Ontario
"My husband, Don, and I loved this savory dish when we first sampled it at a party," notes Nancy Nielsen of Orange, Connecticut. "Of course, I had to have the recipe, which I have downsized to serve just the two of us. This hearty entree featuring tender beef is one of our favorites."
“My husband and I first tasted this soup in a restaurant and just loved it,” recalls KayLyn VanderVeen in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “Because I’m diabetic, I came up with this healthier—but just as tasty—version!”
TIP: SERVE WITH CRUSTY ROLLS AND A GREEN SALAD FOR A VERY HEARTY MEAL, KAYLYN SUGGESTS.
"It's a snap to put together this hearty soup before I leave for work," says Charla Tinney of Tyrone, Oklahoma. "I just add cooked pasta when I get home, and I have a few minutes to relax before supper is ready."
