This is absolutely delicious! Great way to use the bounty of your garden, or the treasures from the latest trip to the farmer's market. I did not put the full 2 tsp. salt into the soup at first, as I was afraid it might become overly salty. Instead, I put in 1 tsp. at first, blended, tasted, then added additional salt-and in the end the 2 tsp. turned out to be right. Still, I would recommend putting in 1 tsp. at first, taste and adjust the salt to your own tastes. Great soup for a very hot summer day!
