Expert Tips

  • If you prefer more fresh dill flavor, increase amount of fresh dill to 2 tablespoons. You may also substitute 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill, if desired. Stir into soup before serving.
  • Fresh lemon juice is preferred over a bottled concentrate or juice to add a bright and fresh flavor to this soup.
