I'm also thinking salad dressing maybe add a little olive oil and garlic. Its worth a try.

Really anything you put olives in... a touch can be added...Chicken salads, potato salad, tuna salads...well you get the idea...just be careful not to make things to thin and runny!


PS....Dill Pickle juice too....

Spaghetti sauce. But then I use a lot of black and green olives in mine. :)

you can marinate/brine chicken in it. i've done that with leftover pickle brine and chicken legs, which imparted a weird but tasty dill and garlic taste to the legs (which were grilled).

also, i like to make a rub out of black peppercorns, powdered garlic, cloves, s&p, bay leaves and allspice, and rub it on pork chops before grilling. the chops are then served topped with pickled hot peppers, and a good splash of the brine.

you could do the same kind of ideas using the olive brine.

I wonder how soaking onions or other vegetables in the brine would work out.

My olives are done in a oil/vinegar mix so I use it as a salad dressing.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I've refrigerated pickled hard boiled eggs in left over pickle juice and they were good. (Especially for egg salad and deviled eggs.) I bet a few pickled eggs in olive brine would be different in a good way. ~Bliss
