What does it mean when we crave salt?
My craving was so big it drove me not only to buy a bag of Ruffles, I also conjured up this pickle perfection.
Since we were going to be out of the country from Thanksgiving to yesterday, and gone for most holiday festivities, we had a couple little happenings before we left.
I made this pickle dip for one of them, and after the initial strange looks from just about everyone, it was a big hit.
So simple, and just how I imagined the flavor would be. I made a double batch and used leftovers for sandwich and wrap spreads. It also traveled on vehicles of raw broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers and once, even a pickle.
The pickle may have been overkill. Just a little.
