So, what's good with pickles?

A friend who knows I like to try new foods gave me a jar of mixed pickles (pearl onions, baby cucumbers, baby corn, etc.) after her last trip to the Czech Rebublic. I appreciate her gesture, and find the pickles quite tasty on their own, but I have no idea what might be good to eat with them. Any suggestions?

We eat them with cold meats and creamed potates, or cheeses.

I like pickles on the side with a grilled cheese sandwich. Pickles are good on hamburgers too, and I add chopped pickles into my potatoe salad.

I like to make what we refer to in my family as "Polish Roses". You take a nice thin slice of a good ham, spread it with a thin layer of cream cheese. Then you lay the pickle at one end and roll like an egg roll. You let them rest covered in the fridge for about 15 - 30 minutes for the cheese to firm up, then remove them to a cutting board and slice away!

We slice them a little thick, about 1/2" and serve with a nice chilled martini. Absolutely divine!!

I believe you. I may even serve that to my handicrafts group tonight.
