Do you love pickles?

If you do, you are certainly not alone. If you give me a jar of pickles in the afternoon, by evening it’s quite possible that it will be seriously diminished, if not totally gone. They are just so simple, salty, crunchy, and quite frankly, perfect. You should even save your juice for lots of amazing health and home benefits, as well as for some of the snacks below.

Whether you prefer the sweet and petite cornichons, or the classic dill pickle, I’m sure you’re always looking for fun and new ways to incorporate pickles into your diet, not just as a garnish, but as a main attraction. If you ask my humble opinion, the pickle has been a sideshow for far too long. It deserves to be the star of the show!

These 12 unique pickle recipes are sure to make your mouth water.
