I’ve lived in the South for a good many years and one thing I’ve learned during my time here is, they like to fry stuff. A lot of stuff. You name it, they’ll fry it. I try to avoid fried foods, for the most part, but there are a couple of things that I just can’t resist when I see them on a menu. One of those irresistibles is a plate of fried pickles.
Have you ever had fried pickles? If not, you’re really missing out. I remember trying them for the first time when I was visiting San Antonio, Texas years and years ago. My husband and I saw them on the menu and thought they sounded so weird that, of course, we just had to try them. They were deliciously crispy, slightly spicy and salty…and instantly addictive. We were hooked and we have enjoyed finding them on restaurant menus ever since!
Imagine my joy when I ran across a healthy option to my favorite fried delicacy! I'm all for sticking with that New Year's resolution as long as possible, so I resolved right then and there that I had to make them.
