This is one of my favorite summer side dishes! I have been putting it on everything lately, especially these sloppy joes! It is crunchy, refreshing and will add a little excitement to your summer BBQs! A long time ago, I made these Grilled Cucumbers with Creamy Pickled Feta Dip and I fell in love with pickled feta.
I know that it sounds strange and it looks even stranger, but it is so good! First of all, who doesn’t love pickles?! Pickles are one of those foods that I always make sure I have a jar or two of on hand in case I get a craving. I’ve said before that I can’t stay away from crunchy salty snacks and pickles definitely fit that bill for me. And I tell myself they are healthier than chips because they are made from cucumbers, which may or may not be true depending on which chips and which pickles you are eating 🙂
Pickled feta is creamy, salty and vinegar-y all at the same time. That is really the best way I can think to describe it. The feta soaks up all the pickly flavor and then when you combine it with thinly sliced cucumbers it gives the entire salad a really awesome taste! This salad is refreshing, crisp, and goes really well with all the summery meals you guys are hopefully eating these days.
I like to combine my pickled feta with cucumbers because it just seems to make sense to me. But I’ve also been wanting to try it on some veggie burgers but I seem to eat it so quickly that I haven’t gotten a chance yet. I would love to hear if any of you have experimented with picked feta and what you have enjoyed it on! And if this is your first introduction to it, I hope you give it a shot and let me know what you think!Print
