    mersaydees's Note:

    A reader's recipe from the national section of my local newspaper, submitted by Joni Hilton of Rocklin, California. She says, "This festive soup with bits of Leprechaun gold is always fun to serve on St. Patrick's Day. You don't have to be Irish to enjoy it. My four kids and husband love it, and the children enjoy finding the gold nuggets -- the corn -- in their bowls."

      Delicious, healthy, and pretty! The only chicken broth on hand was a 4 cup carton of flavor-infused culinary broth which made this super delicious, so I highly recommend that (or adding your own herbs or spices) if making for adults.

      I roughly chop the salad. I used a green leaf lettuce not boston. For the corn, I used frozen corn. The taste is great. It's fresh and healthy. Even my son liked it. Thanks Liisa :) Made for PRMR tag game

      Although I did make this soup according to the recipe, I did pretty much chop the lettuce to death since I wanted it totally dispersed throughout the final product! We thoroughly enjoyed the taste & found the corn/gold thing interesting enough that I'll be making it again sometime when I have young kids around to enjoy it with us! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
