Question Need a good dip for DEEP FRIED PICKLES!!!

Hello everyone and thank you so very much for reading this post.

I was given the suggestion of trying an online forum for help. I have a fairbooth here in Fairbanks, Alaska and was really hoping I could get a recipe for a dipping sauce for Deep Fried Pickles.

I have been looking and trying a number of recipes and have not found anything of much worth. I had these Deep Fried Pickles once as little thick slices that are battered and came with a really awesome sauce that was of a creamy nature with little pits of Dill in it. I can't remember much more then that because it was 3,000 miles away and 6 or so years ago.

I dont need the exact sauce but I would love go have something a little more interesting then Ranch. :)

Any suggestions on what might taste good with the pickle flavor and/or do you know any recipes that I can try or adapt to my needs?

Well anyhow thank you SOOO much for at least taking the time to read this post.

Sincerely,

Kevin in Alaska...

Hey, Kev. Welcome to DC. You have the same nice name as one of my brothers.

Deep-fried pickles, eh? We have those here where I live. I was going to suggest ranch, but you said "nope," but you might think about a salsa-type dip. That might be good. Or a mustard-based dip? Good luck. You'll probably get more answers.

Don't be a stranger. Stick around. We have lots to offer.

Hey Kevin, do you have Uncle Dan's California dill dip mix there? I would use a bit of that in some sour cream, mayo mix. I think I'd also add some chopped pickle to that.

Wow!! 2 posts in just a couple of minutes... You all are so kind. :) I think I might really like this website. :)

Well Ranch is not out, I just like having more then one choice and something with a little more pizzaz (spelling?).

I actually think we do have that up here. I think I will get some of that and try it out ASAP. But if you have anymore suggestions then I am still good for accepting them. heh

Well I will come back later and see what other posts come. Maybe make a trip to the local Fred Meyer food store. :)

Sincerely,

Kevin in Alaska

I have a recipe for a homemade ranch that is really nice - let me know if you want it. I like it because of the chives - it's very fresh tasting.

You could also play with a sauce of sour cream and horseradish - maybe light on the horseradish for the general population and add some dill and even some pickle juice (and some milk to thin it out a bit).

I like fried pickle spears versus slices the best, but that's just me!

If I can think of anything else I'll post.

Your customers will make the final decision for you. I'll wager a Ranch type dressing with Cayenne pepper added will be the most popular!

OMG!! a ranch recipe that is not half milk and half mayo with a packet?! Is that even possible! I would LOVE that if you have one. Is it zesty like hidden valley perchance. Not my fav ranch but I do like the zest! :)

But please no rush and don't go out of the way for me. :) okay.. go out of the way for me! heh..

thanks for the offer. :)

I have also written down your suggestions for the dip. I can't wait to get more and try them all out....

best wishes.

Sincerely,

Kevin in Alaska

Cheers!!

Welcome to DC, Kev.

Those pickles are screaming for MUSTARD! How about either a spicy mustard or honey dijon mustard dipping sauce? You could serve two different sauces in little paper dipping cups -- the spicy mustard dipping sauce and the red sweet dipping sauce, similar to what you find in Chinese restaurants. Or - Tzatziki sauce.

Tzatziki

Just a few thoughts.

I am thinking some sort of yogurt dip with dill as well as garlic and onion powder maybe.

so should I start a new thread for fried pickle recipes? :)

When I do them it is generally when I cook gizzards, because
that is about the limit of my "deep fat" frying. (Fear of Frying.)

And those I like with blue cheese. I take some bleu cheese dressing and
add either some cayenne (or Frank's Red Hot sauce, if I am dining alone). The hot sauce in the bleu cheese dressing is not very visually appealing,
so I otherwise like a spice kicker.
Now I want some fried pickles. Mt. Olive Zesty Dill.
