Dill Pickle Soup

Yes, I said Dill PICKLE soup ! If I had a dime for every time someone gave me a funny look when I said 'DILL PICKLE' soup, boy I'd have a lot of dimes! This is the perfect soup to get you out of that 'soup rut' & cozy enough for a warm bowl in winter! If you ever had it at the former GYR restaurant you'll be making it asap but if you didn't, I promise you'll love this fun soup, first bite !
