This Dill Pickle Soup is probably one of the weirdest recipes on this site. Ok maybe not but whenever I talk about dill pickle soup, I get these strange looks.
Here’s the thing, I’m not a huge fan of dill pickles. I don’t care for them on my burgers, sandwiches or anything else for that matter. I can in moderation though.
So when my wife asked me to make this Dill Pickle Soup for her, I said to myself “well what am I going to eat tonight?” I was kidding of course as there was no way I was going to make two meals that night.
Well, I had a bowl of this pickle soup and it was absolutely delicious! You can taste the dill pickles but it is not overpowering. The potatoes and chicken broth combo keep everything in check.
If you really like the flavor of dill pickles I would suggest garnishing your soup with a few fresh slices of dill pickles. Otherwise, I would suggest you give this soup a little taste before you start adding more to your bowl.
Afraid to try this recipe? Then you need to check out my other Soup Recipes. One of my personal favorites is my Asiago Bisque. Delicious! But if you are looking for a simpler soup recipe to make, then give my Beer Cheese Velvet Soup.
An alternative to using chicken broth is Better Than Bouillon. I often use it when I don't have broth on hand.
