Scandinavian Summer Vegetable Soup

“This is a beautiful and delicious vegetable soup! Everyone at my home loves it, and guests always ask for the recipe. Don't be thrown off by the radishes...they do not have a strong taste in the soup at all, and have a wonderful taste when cooked in the soup. You can top it with shredded cheese if you like...Serve with crusty french bread or yeast rolls! Enjoy!”
