There's plenty of garden goodness in every bowl of this fresh-tasting soup that Marlene Muckenhirn dishes up in Delano, Minnesota. Served chilled, it's perfect for a summer meal.

"good recipe! I added 1 T of EVOO and then diced an avocado to replace the rest of the oil. I also added a handful of fresh, chopped cilantro for some flavor and used homemade tomato juice (no salt added) to greatly reduce the sodium -- no extra salt besides the 1/4 tsp was necessary. Very easy and simple ingredients! It was great without the croutons too."
