A low carb version of a traditional Polish dish, dill pickle soup is the perfect treat for any dill pickle lovers in your life.

Growing up in a largely Polish community in the states means I’ve been exposed to some fairly delicious meals. Oddly, pickle soup, or Zupa Ogórkowa, wasn’t one of them. I only discovered the connection to the Polish community after I started researching pickle based soups because of my love of crisp pickled cucumbers.

One thing I discovered in my research is a traditional Polish pickle soup uses potatoes or rice. Obviously not a low carb friendly addition, so my version obviously eliminated this ingredient. I added ham to give the soup a bit more bulk, and sour cream to give a nod toward the dill pickle roll ups I adore. Finally, I decided some mild cheddar needed to be added because the soup was a bit on the sharp side and the cheese toned it down some.
