Pickles, Pickles, and More Pickles!
You heard it right. This month, amid all the other things we’re celebrating — America’s independence, the joys of ice cream, the art of picnicking, and the culinary arts — we are also partying in honor of the great delicacy that is a pickle.
Now, while it’s always a brilliant idea just to throw a straightforward picking party — you know, gather with your best pals and spend an afternoon under the hot sun preserving the season’s best veggies for later use — we can do better than that. We’re thinking an entire pickle-themed menu — from cocktails and appetizers to main dishes and sides, and maybe even a pickle-shaped cake?
In any case, The Daily Meal staff is particularly fond of the Pickleback — so get familiar with our stellar recipe, as it’s a great party-starter.
