Dill Pickle Soup

potato soup

Kathi, one of our longtime Customer Service Representatives (and a Master Gardener, but that’s another post) shared this lip-smacking soup recipe with us a few years back. And although it may sound a little odd, the combination of the potato and the tangy pickle really do balance each other well, underpinned by the rich chicken stock.
