Delicious in a Flash/You Have It All on Hand Salad Dressing

Total Time

Another great salad idea from my friend, Alla. This is the perfect recipe when you have about 5 seconds to make up a salad and no dressing on hand. ALL MEASUREMENTS HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. Adjust to your taste. This dressing goes on a huge array of green salads; experiment freely with this. It is also a good way to use up that leftover pickle juice which some of us feel guilty just tossing down the sink. (My husband will drink the stuff straight, but the mere thought of that, well...)

I was initially intrigued by this recipe because I love pickles with a passion and I had never seen a dressing like this before. So I made it using pickle juice from my homemade jars. I have to say, I've been trying new salad dressing recipes a lot lately and so many of them are similar but this one was a refreshing change. I absolutely love it and it has found a place on my dinner table forever. It's sweet, tangy, dilly and garlicky. All tastes I adore. Thank you Sarah!

Very, very good and oh, so easy. I always have leftover pickle juice - especially sweet pickle juice - in my refrigerator. Never even thought about using it to make salad dressing. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this Sarah. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.

Easy & tasty!! DH is a pickle fanatic so this was perfect!! We used sweet pickle juice but will try regular next time and probably stick with that. I also used vegenaise and it was still great. I served this over a salad of baby greens, shredded red cabbage, cucumbers, celery, carrots, and onions - like a slaw over greens. Very nice!!
