There are some “natural” ingredients and prepared foods that just go with the taste of pickles. Among them are:
- Ham (especially sweet or smoked ham)
- Cheese (cheddar or smoked Gouda are wonderful and cream cheese is a base ingredient for many dips and spread recipes that also use pickles)
- Fried Chicken (shout out to Nashville Hot and Chick-fil-A)
- Smoked Fish and Fried Fish (think tartar sauce)
- Pulled Pork (yep…Cuban style)
- Hot Dogs (hats off Chicago!)
- Beef (of course)
- And countless vegetables
