This delightful salad is spa-healthy and yet satisfying enough for hearty eaters!
This is a beautiful, colorful hearty, healthy soup that’s easy to prepare as long as you don’t mind a little chopping (make sure your chef’s knife is sharpened!). Mary Anne Hoffman, who won first place for it at a soup contest in the Town of Chevy Chase, was generous enough share the recipe with us. If you’re a meat lover, you can add 1/2 lb. of browned bulk sausage when you add the beans.
