I use pickles in potato salad, chicken salad, sandwiches, with popcorn and just as a snack on a relish tray.

Pickles with popcorn? That's a new idea.

Everybody has covered a good number of the ways we use pickles, love those things.

Also like them cut in strips or wedges and put on a hot dog, kinda like the way they make those great Chicago franks.

Welcome to DC!

How about using a pickle as a swizzle stick in a Bloody Mary

I haven't tried this one yet, but it sounds like a good nibble.


French Fried Pickles

1 qt Dill pickles, sliced thinly
1 3/4 c All purpose flour
2 ts Red pepper (cayenne)
2 ts Paprika
2 ts Pepper
2 ts Garlic salt
1 ts Salt
3 ds Hot sauce (tabasco)
1 c Beer
Vegetable oil

Drain well and dredge pickles in 1 cup of the flour and set aside. Combine 3/4 cup flour with remaining dry ingredients. Add the hot sauce and beer mix well. Dip pickle slices in batter and deep fry in hot (375) oil unti they float and are golden. Drain on towels and serve warm.

I have a recipe for Asian Potato Salad (with cucumbers), I've been meaning to try. If you're interested, give me a wave.

I also add pickle relish to tuna, macaroni and potato salad.

Mish, in Memphis, TN that is called a "Lucile" after .... I'm drawing a blank here, the jazz guy who does the diabetes commercial ... his old guitar.

When I find myself in a pickle glut, I chop and put them in cole slaw, tartar sauce, devilled eggs, and thousand island dressing.

Claire, egg-cellent ideas. Smiling here as the tune of Lucille runs thru my head...B.B. King, I think.
