Tomato Dill Soup Recipe
Meet the Cook: Most often, I make this soup ahead and keep it in the fridge. It's particularly good to take out and heat up with tuna or grilled cheese sandwiches, hard rolls or a salad. It would be fine to serve - hot or cold - at a soup supper as well. -Patty Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
