My husband and I thought this was delicious. I had no garlic salt so I used a teaspoon of salt and added a clove of fresh garlic. Also only 3 lbs of chopped tomatoes. I took someone's suggestion and only drizzled a teaspoon or so of oil on the top instead of the quarter cup. Using chilled ingredients helped. Have already added this to my "frequently used" menus.

I had high hopes for this soup, but it did not meet my expectations. It tasted a little too acidic, and maybe even a little bitter. Not a do-over.

I didn't have any garlic salt, so I substituted 2 teaspoons of regular salt and about 2 tablespoons of garlic. I also think I used more basil than the recipe calls for. It was delicious! My roommates loved it so much that they told me I definitely need to make it again!

Delicious, easy, and great on an August day in cental Texas! Next time I'll leave out the oil, though.

didn't have broth used bullion instead and used fresh garlic no salt (as there is enough in the bullion. Basil was fresh from my garden and the tomatoes were already chilled. . .Made for a quick cool meal

I was surprised how good this was for limited ingredients and effort. I was looking for a good way to use up the tomatoes and basil in the garden and this was great on a hot summer night with a fresh baguette. FRESH BASIL is a MUST. Don't even bother with this recipe if you don't have it. I also cut back on the oil.

I enjoyed this soup when first made, the next day as leftovers it had turned acidic. It was easy to make, which is always a perk. Next time I want to try it with less oil, not sure it needed that much, and maybe blend in a roasted red pepper just for kicks. Great use of the last of my tomatos in the garden. Next time will skin and remove the seeds from the tomatos. A good crusty bread to compliment is a must.

This soup is OK. Something is missing though. I'm going to keep searching for a recipe I love.
