Did anyone else notice the little heart in the picture above. Legend has it that only those who truly love pickles are able to see it.

And that’s when we will learn who will be totally disgusted or totally on board with today’s recipe. I’m not here to judge, but if you don’t like pickles you’re doing life wrong.

Baby Mama quotes

This is coming from the girl who ate pickle sandwiches. As in just bread, a little bit of mayo, and a mountain of dill chips. The ladies at the deli station in our college dining hall looked at me like I was crazy. They must have had x-ray vision or something, cuz they got that ish spot on.

And being the crazy non-food wasting kinda gal I am, I didn’t want to belittle this jar of precious liquid gold to the kitchen sink. A couple of swigs in (no shame), it came to me.

You put vinegar in a salad dressing, so why not pickle juice?! No more brines left behind.

You could easily use the leftover pickle juice with some olive oil and a squirt of Dijon straight in the pickle jar, but I wanted to make something a little more cray cray to better personify my status in the realm of pickle love. Because making sandwiches and salad dressings out of them clearly wasn’t enough. So I added some creaminess with a guest performance by my friend avocado to really put this green tang of thang over the edge.

I used my favorite pickles that I shared on instagram a while back, since there’s no added preservatives or additives which is hard to find in the pickle aisle.

Most contain some sort of coloring and funky preservatives, so I thank the pickle universe that they finally gave me one I can worship. Especially since they’re the same price! But feel free whatever pickle tickles your fancy!

  3. Funny ! My favorite treat after school was pickle sandwiches with mayo and Velvetta cheese back in the 70’s. When I’m not feeling well…that’s still one of my comfort foods! Your my kinda a people! Trying the recipe right now. Throwing pickle juice down the drain induces an episode of mourning. Something I don’t want to experience πŸ™‚

  4. I used to eat dill pickle and mustard sandwiches after school. In addition I have made Italian dressing with dill pickle juice. I’m positive I will love this.

  9. I love dill pickles! I also eat dill pickle sandwiches, but I do toast, butter and slices of pickles….the butter and pickles are super good together!

  10. This is delicious! I served it over a side salad with bacon cheeseburger casserole!! YUM! Oh also I didn’t quite have enough pickle juice so I used a mixture of pickle juice, pickled okra juice and banana pepper juice!

  13. This looks great! I love dill pickle flavoring when it comes to snacks and even sunflower seeds. So I think this would be a great dressing to try. I’m curious what type of salad / food I’d want to serve it with, but I will figure it out! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
