Can I use any other kinds of pickles?
While you can use any kind of pickle you want in this recipe, we recommend using a dill pickle or Kosher dill pickle because they are savory and vinegary. Feel free to get sassy and use a spicy dill pickle!
Other pickles such as bread and butter and sweet pickles, are more sweet than savory, which is why we don’t recommend these.
Can I make this vegan?
While we haven’t tried to use a non-dairy yogurt, you totally can! Make sure you use a plain, no sugar added yogurt. Give it a taste because you might need to add a little more dill pickle juice and/or lemon juice.
Lucky for you the hardest part about this recipe is chopping the pickles! Otherwise, place everything into a bowl and stir to combine.
