Fried Pickles with Dill Greek Yogurt Sauce
On my summer to-make list all summer long has been a dill Greek yogurt sauce. It sounded so good and with the addition of fresh dill, I knew it would be full of flavor. I took a shortcut with this recipe by using Farm Rich crispy dill pickles to save time. Farm Rich has a new contest going on called the Back Your Snack contest which you can learn more about below.

I wanted a sauce that tasted rich but was actually quite healthy. I love using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream because it tastes the same but has no fat, is lower in calories and is higher in protein and calcium. It tastes decadent but is actually not.

This sauce is loaded with flavor with the addition of the dill, fresh green onions and garlic. It is delicious and could also be used as a vegetable dip or eaten with a whole-wheat pita. Other uses for this sauce would be on a wrap or with Mediterranean foods.

I made this recipe for my husband's side of the family (about 30 people) and they really liked it. Many of them had not tried fried dill pickles before and they were impressed. They asked the brand and plan to purchase some themselves. The sauce was perfect and was good with the dill pickles and with baked whole-wheat pita slices.

For this recipe, I used Farm Rich crispy dill pickles which I picked up at my local Walmart. I also purchased some Walmart Fresh items such as the cucumber, green onions and garlic cloves. My family has been using Farm Rich products for years for quick appetizers. I like to make semi-homemade appetizers by using a Farm Rich app and adding my own unique sauce or side to accompany it.
