TikTok is the place to go for ingenious food preparation hacks and flavor combinations. Pancake cereal or 2-ingredient cake? They've got it. The latest food hack that the TikTok community has gifted us with is ranch flavored pickles, an amazing combo of flavors that embodies the concept of the sum being greater than its parts.
We All Love Pickles
Pickles are the star of pickled foods, somehow far more delicious than other similar variations. Many pickle lovers could eat a jar of baby dill pickles in one sitting, and don't even get me started on fried pickles.
Many of the best appetizers are pickle-based, from pickle-cream cheese wraps to crispy, golden-brown air fryer pickle chips. These easy recipes often combine pickles with savory flavors like salt, black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. For extra spice, cayenne pepper can be added, and paprika always adds a tasty kick.
Some pickle lovers even go so far as to drink pickle juice, which has a surprising number of health benefits. However, the new discovery that will change pickles forever is that pickles taste incredible when flavored with Ranch!
The Obvious Combination
Ranch dipping sauce has long been considered a delicious condiment for veggies, while Ranch dressing is the perfect addition to a salad. Because of this, it's a wonder that we haven't already discovered how yummy Ranch dip tastes with pickles!
While you could simply dip your pickle spears into ranch dip, this revolutionary TikTok shows an even easier way to enjoy this combo. To follow this Ranch pickles recipe, all you need is a jar of pickles and a packet of Ranch seasoning. Open your pickle jar and pour in the whole packet of Ranch. Then, shake it up until the seasoning is evenly distributed, and then refrigerate for at least a day.
Then, take out a pickle spear and munch away! Here's the TikTok video by @mamacookslowcarb to see for yourself!
