Pickles have graduated from a side dish staple to a major player in the culinary world. It’s no wonder pickles are having a moment in grocery stores and on TikTok. Their versatility extends beyond traditional recipes, as evidenced by the recent surge of pickle-flavored snacks. From potato chips to popcorn, here are five pickle-flavored recipes that are beyond “dill-icious.”

Next, pop your favorite popcorn and drizzle on melted butter before adding the spices. Finally, give the popcorn a good mix to ensure everything is evenly combined, and enjoy!
Pickles and potato chips are a salty match made for snacking. Start by crushing dehydrated pickles into a powder. Then add salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Finally, cover the chips in the pickle seasoning, and enjoy!
This recipe for a classic dirty martini features an infusion of pickles. Start by adding gin to a shaker, followed by a splash of vermouth. Next, pour some pickle juice into the shaker, and add ice. Finally, shake thoroughly. Then pour the cocktail into a martini glass with half of a dill pickle, and bottoms up.
Pickle lovers will go nuts for this recipe. First, puncture holes into unripe green walnuts using a fork. For the brine, boil water and coarse sea salt until the salt is dissolved. Then pack the walnuts tightly into a jar before pouring in the brine and completely covering the walnuts. Cap the jar and store it in a cool, dark place for a week. Then drain the brine and lay the walnuts outside in the sun until they’ve evenly darkened. Finally, pack the darkened walnuts into a jar and add a mix of malt vinegar and castor sugar. Then store it in a cool, dark place for a month.
