Amazing Soup Recipe


Sometimes one finds a recipe with such a wild ingredient it must be made...I love dill pickles and when I stumble across this recipe I thought hmmm, what could it possibly taste like after all it has pickles, pickle juice and sour cream. The curious person I am, of course, I had to try it and much to my own surprise it was amazing, so fresh tasting, light not heavy at all. A very unique and exciting mix that will make your taste buds say, Wow! It can even be altered by adding chicken, ham etc. It is a quick meal takes approx. 30 minutes preparing and cooking.
