Salad Pickle Preference

I was just reading about how some of us like to make tuna salad, and that got me to thinking. When you make potato, macaroni, or tuna salad, what kind of pickles do you prefer, if any?

Either pimento stuffed green olives (Manzanilla) or Kalamata olives.

I don't do tuna. But with turkey salad, I like chopped dill pickles, some dill pickle juice, and chopped capers, sometimes some greek olives.

I mostly use dill pickles to give that bite to the salad.

No pickles in any of my salads, but if someone made it that way I would eat it. Pickles are for relish and Big Macs

Sweet or dill, whatever I grab first. I also like any kind of olives chopped in, too.

Sweet relish of course! Not the hot dog relish with mustard mixed in...
