I slightly adapted the original recipe
by Chef Otto of
Otto and Anita's Schnitzel House
in Portland, Oregon.
This very unusual Dill Pickle Soup tastes fantastic! It
always surprises my guests when they discover that it has dill pickles in it.
Excellent for a dinner party to give your meal a spectacular start. I've
used this wonderful soup in several of my dinner party menus. Try it - you'll like it!
