Sweet, sour, spicy, and absolutely addicting. These pickles combine multiple layers of flavor into a simplistic pickle that you can add to almost any dish. Grill up a burger, some hotdogs, or just have them with a salad – adding these flavor packed pickles will surely brighten any dish.
On a ketogenic diet, a little bit of crunch is never a bad thing, either. These little guys will not only add flavor, but they will add a great texture to almost anything you put them with. The sweetness initially comes through on the pickles, which pairs well with many savory dishes to cut through the fattiness. This is followed by the acidity and heat, which perfectly complements the sweetness that is initially tasted.
They’re super simple to make, too. Just cut some cucumber up, throw some ingredients in a jar, and you’ll have them ready the next day!
