Sweet Pickle Macaroni Salad

Mr. J wasn’t into pickles until he had a bread & butter sweet pickle a few years ago. Now he wonders where they had been his whole life! I mixed up this sweet pickle macaroni salad as a side dish using not only the pickles, but the pickle “juice” for the dressing. It was an easy side to prep the night before for a faster week-night meal.

I almost mixed in a hard boiled egg, but ended up sending that as the little one’s lunch. This was good and the sweetness was good with a grilled dinner.

  1. It’s funny because my husband is obsessed with dill pickles, but hates sweet pickles. I love both and this macaroni salad sounds delicious to me!!
