A blend of tender vegetables adds garden-fresh goodness to this hearty soup from Michelle Nichol of Bedford, Nova Scotia. "You can give it extra zip by using spicier salsa," she notes.

"This is a tastey soup. Much better than expected. I will make it again. Since recipe only calls for 1/4 cup salsa, I recommend using medium or hot salsa to give it more zip. I used mild and then decided to add a dash of chili powder to give it more flavor. I like this recipe because it's a relatively low sodium recipe. I used no salt diced tomatoes."
