Spring has sprung! And so have your dinner parties. It’s warming up during the days, but the nights are still cool—perfect weather for a bowl of soup. (And, might we suggest, a grilled cheese sandwich?) A Food52er tweeted at @Food52Hotline looking for recommendations for a springy soup to kick off the party season, and, as always, you came through with lovely, seasonal suggestions.

Let's have dinner sometime. There will be champagne and ice cream for sure; everything else is up in the air.
