"After reading the comment about this soup, I decided to change it a bit. I doubled the amount of dill and added 2 large garlic cloves and one 5 oz. containter of Low-Fat Feta cheese. I thought it was very tasteful and received compliments from all who tried it."

"I'm sorry I have to say this, but my husband and I didn't care for this soup.  We found the soup to be rather bland, and even after I added 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce, and a Dash (1/8 tsp each) of cayenne red pepper, garlic powder, and salt, (which gave this soup some added flavor) we still didn't care for it.  Guess the soup just didn't suit our taste buds!"
