You already know how incredibly well these Farmer's Garden
But as delicious as these pickles are on their own or next to
burgers and sandwiches, they're also terrific as an ingredient!
Which is exactly how they played this evening in my mom's noodle salad!
The word noodles is so much more fun
to say than pasta... Don't you think?
I think so! I also think we should all ditch the noodle salad in our
grocery stores and invest the few minutes it takes to make our own!
The base for my mom's noodle salad is the same one she uses
to make her delicious tuna salad... Dill pickle, egg and red onion!
By the way... In case you hate chopping eggs as much as I do, let me
show you a less messier way to achieve perfectly diced eggs... First,
place egg onto your egg slicer as you normally would and, slice it...
Then, carefully remove it from the slicer. With your other hand, open the
slicer again and place the egg in the opposite direction for a second slice...
Now, this is usually where I stop slicing eggs for my egg salad
since the man I love prefers big chunks of egg in his sandwich!
However, for my mom's noodle salad, we're going for
a third slice with the egg first set down on the diagonal...
See? No fuss... No muss...
Just perfectly diced eggs for Mom's Noodle Salad!
I have to tell you that my favorite part of my mom's noodle salad is always
the dill pickle. I have always loved them. I ordered my hamburgers plain,
only pickles with extra pickles please, until I was in my early twenties!
Crunchy dill pickle adds such a delicious, lip-smacking zip that I just
cannot imagine this salad without them... Especially these beautiful
little of the pickled carrots, garlic and red pepper packed into every jar!
Now, add the best mayonnaise; which, for me means only Hellman's!
Finally, crank the pepper mill a few turns for fresh cracked
black pepper and finish with a generous sprinkle of coarse sea salt!
Then... Stir it all together! And, while all the flavors
are getting to know each other, fire up your grill!
Because my mom's noodle salad always tastes best paired
with my favorite, German weisswurst and bratwurst!
Or... Bacon-wrapped Filet Mignon!
Options for this amazing side dish truly are
endless and, best of all, the choice is yours!
I hope you'll treat yourself and your family to my mom's noodle
salad and that you make Farmer's Garden pickles your choice!
